Because of their larger size and shape, desk phone handsets are usually more comfortable than mobile phones when held up to the ear. Designer Robert Potter wants to fix that with his concept product, the Earos.

This contraption clips onto your mobile phone, giving you a padded surface to put against the ear. According to the product description, this puts the ear at a distance from the phone so you don't feel the heat from the handset. When not in use, the padded part can be flipped to the back, doubling as a display stand for use on a flat surface.

Although it looks a little like a toilet seat at first glance, the Earos could be useful to some who find positioning their phones near the ear uncomfortable. However, it is merely a concept for now. More details can be found at Yanko Design.
