Georgie uses gesture, voice recognition and haptics. It consists of an app and add-ons to get the functions a user needs.

Users can start by touching any spot on the screen. Finger gestures then allow them to navigate to their desired function, while vibrations and voice alerts let them know if they are on the right track and give choices. The phone learns the habits and preferences of the user.

The smartphone is currently being tested in Israel.
