Aatma Studio is known for its concept videos of the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad. Now, the studio has made its own mockup of the Apple iPhone 5 that includes a fingerprint scanner and something they call "rubber band" electronics. The latter is obviously accomplished through a combination of editing and filming angles.
Will we ever see something like "rubber band" electronics in the future? Imagine being able to have a smartphone that converts into a tablet with a simple gesture. As for the fingerprint scanning, Apple is actually one-step closer to offering this on its mobile devices thanks to its proposed purchase of AuthenTec. The company's board is expected to agree to a $365 million purchase next month by the Cupertino based firm.
Apple's purchase of AuthenTec should bring fingerprint scanning to the Apple iPhone
AuthenTec produces mobile phone security technology including a 2D fingerprint sensor it is developing for the Apple iPhone, according to merger documents filed with the SEC. If a fingerprint scanner is not included in this year's model, it would appear that next year's Apple iPhone will include one. AuthenTec has a development contract with Apple that was signed this past July and expires September 2013 which would be when we could expect to see the unveiling of the 7th generation Apple iPhone.
But we are obviously jumping the gun. We haven't even seen the 6th generational model yet. One thing we can say with certainty is that "rubber band" electronics won't be a feature on it.
I'm sure the finger print scanning, whether it be a 6th or 7th gen feature, will not work great. It seems like how they did voice search at first. A friend of mine has an iPhone 3Gs and we still like to see what kind of bad results voice search comes up with.
Asus has a concept on a screen size changing feature, on a device referred to as Iris they showed it at CES 2010.
By pulling the corners the device can be changed to whatever size you want, Among other things. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSVdZyz23AQ
Adoptable devices would be cool, though it would probably be a while till we got them.
I am not partisan about much, i am bi-partisan. I use Android and grateful that Samsung launches its international version in my country. Bought the newipad 1 month ago but unable to use because itunes wants credit card no and i dont want to give credit card no. I used US address, since my siblings live there and us address helps in downloading music thats free. I will never download paid app, it wants international credit card but my country does not allow full convertibility to save foreign currency . Yet i am stuck like that. is that fair? I found out that there are many who have not used their apple device for upto a year because of id and itune and crap+s**t. THANK GOD FOR ANDROID. ..THANK YOU GOOGLE AND SAMMY AND OTHERS. I am connected to the world...Apple is adifficult boorish experience. .... and this is the case worlwide
I must say that the elastic feature would be great but I don't see Apple doing this. The closest to this is Maybe Samsung with its bendable display if it can design bendable microprocessors and LTE chips. Now that would be Innovation.
