10 iPhone 5 concepts
Wouldn't it be awesome if the iPhone 5 turns out to be transparent? Perhaps it won't be very practical, but it would definitely be impressive to see in person. Besides, a transparent smartphone means you'd be able to watch your step while texting and walking. Oh, and that holographic virtual keyboard looks pretty neat too.
Why would anyone need an iPad or an iPad mini if they could simply stretch their iPhone to the desired size? Sadly, the iPhone 5 won't be able to do that, but the iPhone 35 may have that functionality.
And here is the iPhone 5 as imagined by NAK Studio – slim, shiny, and attractive as it has always been. In this conceptual iPhone design, the home button has been moved to the side, thus allowing more room on the device's front for an even bigger display.
This is also a concept by NAK Studio, this time with added color variants of the iPhone 5. Don't you think it would have been awesome if the iPhone was available in colors different than black and white, just like some iPod models? We sure do!
Here is what the iPhone 5 would look like, if it were designed to resemble a Magic Mouse – white and curvy. The glow-in-the-dark Apple logo on the device's back is a nice little touch we quite like. Credit goes to the designers at Ciccarese Design who came up with this concept.
With a theoretical thickness of 4 millimeters, this iPhone 5 concept made by Alternative Industries is among the boldest we've come across. The body of this fictional device better be made out of adamantium if it is to survive more than a single drop to the floor.
This iPhone 5 concept appears to be a tribute to the very first iPhone's design, with curved sides and a metallic back plate. Looks pretty nice, although a flush headphone jack would have made this concept much better.
What makes this iPhone 5 concept special is that it incorporates Liquidmetal into the construction of the device. The fancy alloy is not likely to appear on the next iPhone, though, so don't get your hopes up too high.
How about an iPhone 5 with interchangeable lenses? Yeah, somebody came up with a concept like that as well, and it looks too ridiculous to be practical, yet kind of cool in its own crazy way.
And the award for the weirdest iPhone concept goes to Ciccarese Design and their spider-like contraption. As you can see in the video, the user is supposed to attach the device to the back of their hand, which doesn't seem neither like a practical, nor a comfortable solution.
