This device isn't practical at all.. talk about trying to reduce use of you hands to manually carry stuff

Looks like Apple stole some design cues from Alien's face hugger. I wonder if Ridley Scott patent the design.... I see it now, Apple sues Ridley for stealing their shape when he made Alien in 1979.

Why not JUST make it look like a watch?
Did someone patent the watch design already?

Probably not....but since Android is on a watch now.....Apple will probably do that and just sue the hell outta Google.
Or Apple will somehow link it back to the that tiny iPod Nano and sue.

There is already a watch holder for the iPod Nano....

i wonder if those claws embed in your skin so u can never leave it or change you mind. mayb administering brainwashing drugs directly into your blood stream for more effective control over their "loyal customers/sheep". that POS won't even fit evrybdy. all hands are different. it'd be a b!tch trying to fit each individual person. but then again apple would prolly sell adapters to make it fit different ppl and charge alot for those too.
also for some reason i don't know why it reminds me of the power glove by nintendo.

Samsung will make something like this long before Apple does, they already have flexible screens that are being tested for such uses.
This begs the question, who's bright idea was to make it so draconian in appearance? Seriously, you embrace technology, not the other way around.

exactly, Samsung's idea and prototype of flexible screen has been out now for a while.
Plus, who is going to wear such a thing?! looks so boyish and silly.

I don't sweat immature twits who hide behind computer monitors. There's plenty of mature people on this site who can have intelligent conversations without letting immature OS wars get in the way of courtesy. You can't let the trolls get in the way of that. :-)

Lol...apple , and getting tech of the future before anyone else? Lol nice try isheeseep

Sure, why wouldn't they? Just another Apple device to buy. Profit profit profit.
I'd rather just have a forearm sleeve I can slip my phone into and out of. Seems more practical. Those little metal bars look pretty and all but also look like a hindrance to dexterity and flexibility. Or even a point of injury.

Plus it's not safe for drivers, both hands off the steering wheel.
Next apple's innovation, the icondom.

Those are some Wolverine type claws on that thing! Maybe they're made of adamantium.

**** Wow must have been too much galaxy S3 talk for PhoneArena to post a fake story like this. But then it is phonearena...would have posted it anyways lol just look at the name of the video "iphone5"??? LAME! ****
26. Rayvelynn posted on 06 Jul 2012, 18:02 2 0
How the heck do you answer the phone on that thing??? This is the kinda stuff Apple would come up with if they run out of ideas or can no longer steal/copy someone elses patent. lol

If apple sticks to the 1980s icon grid layout in the future, i doubt theyll see much of it...

Comeon as***les....... This thng isnt official yet....its just a concept made by any random youtuber and you all hve started commenting on it being copied and patents and stuff....

Hell, I'm just gonna chop my hand off and replace it with this device! Can't wait. Now where's my Cheech and Chong video's and my magic mushrooms......

we can't say what they are planning for the future,they like to keep secrets.......google and samsung like to reveal their future plans unlike apple

Its a good idea as long it supports blue tooth through any device you already have. I could sync this through my S3 and have the best of both worlds. Like the design but looks uncomfortable and painful. I'd be afraid its going to anal probe me in my sleep and make me buy an ipad.
