I’ll save you some time and trouble researching, guessing and worrying about where technology is headed, and instead simply just tell you what you can expect. Perhaps even together, we can speed things along.
Soon, the single most important mobile device that you will have, will perform several vital functions and may look similar to this.
With the latest development of flexible screens and circuitry your device becomes a handheld computer tablet when needed by either flipping, folding or stretching it to a full size. It will be fairly tough and rugged, yet light and cheap to replace.
When connected to another device, they seamlessly merge and expand the viewing area, allowing for a few people together to assemble a communal TV.
For convenience it will wrap around your wrist and operate similar to a smartwatch. It will become your contact entry point and cue device using audio, visual and haptic vibrations. It will monitor your biometrics, like your sleep cycles, pulse, temperature and many more.
The device can be inverted and wrapped around your head to provide either Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality experiences, adding to, or replacing your perceived environment. Allowing you access to a global experience database. (similar to how the net provides knowledge) and allows you to surf (navigate) through static and video webpages in 360 VR. All businesses should get on board right away.
It will most likely contains a personal assistant, with the most recent development of Artificial Intelligence which help you be more efficient with your life. It will also control (and monitor for risk assessment) what (biometric) information you share and to whom. It will manage your “If this then that requests” and become your own life coach.
It will (obviously) have Tango, be WIFI and Bluetooth Enabled, and be able to broadcast to audio and video to any devices as needed. (360 cameras, headphones, nearby Televisions or other devices) It will also be able to share its view with other smart devices, offering an inter-connectivity tool of unprecedented value, oh and it interacts with your smart devices in the Internet of things)
The most amazing thing about this device is that you Already own the prototype. Its probably in your pocket right now. (you may even be reading this on it)
Your current Device most likely has the ability to do everything mentioned above.
If you watch a 360 video on YouTube and click the mask symbol (bottom right), you can enter your device into a cardboard VR device and experience a form of Virtual Reality entertainment called 360VR. (someday, it will work with all videos, (it will create a theater room for you, so get on this #YouTube)
You can open “full” CGI VR apps and experience “true” VR using navigation by controller or by head direction) (soon it will navigate by tracking your eyes and your gaze. ahem #Samsung)
If you have BlueTooth, Wifi, Siri or Chrome cast, you can already send video to nearby TVs , Headsets and do tons of stuff by voice command interface.
oh, and if you want you, your mobile device can even be attached to your wrist.
So tell everyone, and lets get this product upgraded and delivered A.S.A.P. It has the potential to improve quality of life, ease of access to information and experience. In the long run, it might help us save the planet by disrupting/realigning our travel and resource consumption systems.
(oh, and give me a call, i’d like to be on the team that develops it)
