BlackBerry Opus concept reimagines what a BlackBerry can be

It's not often that concept designs really stand out to me but a new BlackBerry design making its way around the internet called Opus has caught my attention recently. It comes from a group of folks, called BlackBerry Network and was posted on Behance recently and overall, it reimagines what a BlackBerry and accessories can be by skipping 'traditional' phone design.

Rather than taking inspiration from a phone design, the BlackBerry Network team redesigned an identity card, and built off of that to come up with the BlackBerry Opus concept.

Mobile devices have become smart these days and that's great. But they present one problem: distraction, leading to low productivity, a strict danger to the growth of offices.
Opus is a digital Office Identity Card that helps you operate better, communicate effectively.
Placed intuitively around your neck, it gives you only the tools necessary to manage your day to day work in a connected office network.
The device provides you with quick voice notes, calling and texting for smoother teamwork, becomes your partner during presentations, keeps a database for all your daily tasks and documents, and helps keep you focused by blocking out distractions.
