Smarter than Smart: Phones of the FutureMay 18th, 2012 | Posted by in Technology Trends
Twenty years ago, a mobile phone was a foreign concept – and now owning a smartphone is Modern Living 101. How will we view phones in the next two decades? Here are some mind-blowing designs of future phones!
With the popularity of tablets increasing, and the amount of time spent on rich media like games and movies exploding, a big screen is absolutely necessary. But how big can the screen be without sacrificing portability? That’s why designer Aleksandr Mukomelov imagines a solution – a small phone, with a huge screen.
“Cobalto” the 3D Phone
Designer Mac Funamizu envisions a phone that isn’t just bound to the screen. Resembling Princess Leah’s message to Obi-Won Kenobi in Star-Wars, the Cobalto phone design displays holograms in place of a regular screen. This opens the door for app developers to develop anything from 3D GPS navigation to 3D gaming – right on your phone.
Alongside the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Nokia launched a concept phone design that morphs to your everyday needs. Wear it around your wrist as a wristband, keep it in your pocket or expand it to the size of a screen – the Morph phone changes as your needs change.
“The Window Phone”
Cut the excess parts of the phone with a fully glass “Window” phone – a phone that fully integrates surroundings and gestures for a seamless phone experience. Although it boasts changing its screen opacity based on the weather, the last thing we would want here at Quixey is a cloudy phone on a rainy day – but the concept is interesting!
“Projector Phone – iPhone GNext”
This phone is one that you can easily hold “in the palm of your hand” – if you know what we mean. The iPhone GNext concept is a little wristband which projects the screen of your phone onto your hand, giving you an easily accessible and extremely portable phone.
We’re extremely excited for the future and we hope you are too! Which of these phones would you want? Tweet @Quixey your answer!
