If you are the proud owner of the latest, smartest, most capable cell phone on the market (depending of course on your needs and brand addiction) and you are thinking to add even more smartness to your life, probably the next purchase will be a seasoned smartwatch to complete your tech – savvy life. But what if we could have both? What if some companies are thinking ahead, planning the future for all of us and aiming to shatter everything we know (and are used to) when it comes to our every day rectangular cell phone and side watch? We will show you 3 futuristic gadgets that will change the world of smartphones and smartwatches alike, the key – word here being “futuristic” – as in they are only in the project – phase and aren’t available yet, but who knows, they might be among us soon enough.
1. The Paddle
Forget everything that comes in geometrical shapes and need more than one accessory to impress you: here we have the Paddle, a deformable device (more like a cooking dough provided with touch screen) that at some point will feature physical controls and promoted like a life changer. You can use it as a phone, a tablet, a smartwatch, a bracelet even, as you can fold and unfold it anyway you like. If you are ready to be amazed, here are more details on this concept – device developed by a team at the Hasselt University from Belgium.
2. Nokia’s Morph
Back in 2008, Nokia started pushing our most sensitive buttons when it came to smart technology by showing us the Morph, a solar – powered, self – cleanable device which morphs and shape – shifts into anything we’d like, from a phone to an earring. However, even after all this time, the Morph isn’t here yet and Nokia isn’t doing so great in the field of smartphones and smartwatches, but we can only hope that we won’t have to retire before the Morph will elegantly hang around our wrist.
3. Philips brings in the Fluid
Or so they hope to, as the tech is not so advanced right now to deliver a cell phone so thin it could be slapped against our wrist to become a multi – functional bracelet replacing the tablet, the cell and the smartwatch altogether, but it sure looks and sounds promising, as in our every – growing need for speed and mobility, this gadget might be the answer to all our problems. So let’s hope for the best!
Back to our reality, there are currently available (or soon will be) some futuristic gadgets that will change the world of smartphones and smartwatches alike and taking a look over at Apple or Samsung or Google even, you will realize we are already living in a science – fiction movie. However, it’s not useless to dream…
