Nokia is releasing the Nokia N900, a mobile phone running on the Maemo platform, after months of testing, tweaking and hard work. We’re given a hint of the transition from human ideas to an actual phone with “Focus Group”, a television commercial presented in the form of a surveillance camera film.
This begins like any ordinary focus group for a cell phone, throwing around the futuristic hopes of phone users. Not all is as it seems however. Viewers will be rewarded by staying focused until 1:45 minutes, with unusual and disturbing footage of a shape shifting kind right through to the end at 2:36.
