Christmas is around the corner and we’re sure that a mobile or a tablet will be high on most people’s wish lists but with the release of the latest ipad mini and the ever growing tablet market, getting smaller smarter and better- Which begs the question- What's next for mobiles?
For years I have bored my mates by stating that totally clear phones will one day be the norm. I have no idea how they will do it but then if you went back to say 1830 with even a Nokia 5100 GSM handset from 1998 and said to someone, "I can contact anyone in the world who has a similar device.", they would have asked the same question.
I just think, and have done for a long time, that a totally clear phone which only displays anything when being used will look so cool that scientists and technologists will strive to be able to make one eventually. Doubtless the invention or perfection of a conductive glass allow will be important to allow "invisible" electrical connections never mind the chip sets that control it. Then you'll need some kind of clear ionic gel to act as a battery.
I'm just raging it the concept has been covered in a film although I see from the piccy that the phone is not 100% clear glass when out of use. Hah! In my concept the whole body of the device is totally clear when not being used and the whole front face is a touchscreen when it is in use.
the future lies within powerhouses like this
these chips would put a fair few laptop/ older desktops to shame
