Tactful Calling

Phone calls with urgency. And without.
Not every

phone call is alike. What if there was a way to flag certain calls as important, and others as less so? Tactful Calling denotes a call’s level of urgency using a force-sensitive dial button. Placing an important call requires pushing the button with more force, while a more hesitant call needs only a gentle touch.

On the receiving end, the user can set up a filter for incoming calls, such as redirecting any not flagged as important. Tactful Calling enables phone users to accept, reject or ignore calls with greater awareness of context, improving communication and human-to-human connectedness.
