This is perhaps the greatest iPhone concept ever

Check out this video of a completely fake but completely awesome Apple iPhone concept that packs a holographic display and a laser keyboard into an ultra-thin body…

Thanks for finding this for me Chiquikon so I didn't have to go looking for it in my bookmarks. In fact Ken N. has a post about it on some obscure site called Phone Arena.http://www.phonearena.com/news/Mozilla-Seabird-community-inspired-concept-device_id13468

Maybe Ian M. should have done some checking before making this post?
Naah, its not like IP, Patents, suing for infringement, suing to ban products, and licensing deals are topical right now...

ehh.... would be awesome... but lets keep in mind that EVEN THO APPLE IS NICE A SLEEK AND HIP DOESN'T MEAN ITS NECESSARILY THAT ADVANCED... DEFINITELY NOT THIS ADVANCED.

Tech like this wouldn't be in an apple phone for about tens years to be honest as Apple will implement tech features like this really slowly one by one and convince their isheep to buy ever single iphone each time for a single update.

Android and others on the other hand would get all the treats in one and no knee bowing before the apple overlords

That was pretty cool...I'd jump the android ship for an iPhone that could do that

But its fake

And I'd probably return it within 2 weeks once it gets old

THIS IS ONLY HAPPEN IN VIDEO. I'm absolutely 100% sure apple is not that advanced specially the the last part where the holigram project in the midair ....... it going to take alot more energy then just iphone power to control the image project midair.

As far as the project keyboard that is more in the reach of today technology.

That's paper thin... I'd be so uncomfortable holding it. Looks like it would snap just by putting it in your pocket. I like streamline designs but c'mon... They gotta draw the line somewhere. Otherwise nice concepts.

Don't like that thin either ... imagine ... 0.5mm thin edge to edge display ... you just can't hold it properly :D

The iphone is overpriced and overrated and go ahead and bite me for it, but I totally agree with Andro, android will do it all in one phone and apple will parse it out a little teensy bit at a time in order to make the most $, no thanks, I am so willing to pay less for more every time!

I know this is just a concept and probably not even true. Even though there are laser keyboards out there already, with the way things are now Apple will patent the idea, hug it and call it theirs and sue the other companies that invited with the technology first.... just saying... LOL :)

Are you kidding me??...Apple come out with something revolutionary? Please....the cost to make the current iPhone is one of the cheapest among the "superphones" and they demand the most of any vendor. $660+ for an iPhone 4, which is well over $100 more than the competittion. The iPhone is going to be the death of the independant phone agent. All my cash flow is tied in buying the dam thing and I receive no residuals on iPhone sales. My profit margin is 3 bucks....yes 3 bucks. I make much much more on Samsung, Motorola, and LG super phone sales and those are 4G devices with bigger/better screens, better processors and faster speeds. It kills me that Apple is such a marketing powerhouse that thet've got everyone convinced that the iPhone is the device to have....well since the iphone has arrived at VZW half my devices walking out the door have been iphones and all the $$$$ is going in Steve Job's pocket....all in the name of profitability and market share. Nice to know Apple cares about the small business man/woman

FU Steve Jobs....I hope you get burried in a icasket!

That was pretty cool. Perhaps in another few years we may see something like this, whether it's from Apple, Android or someone else because people are always thinking of new ideas.

pico projectors for the keyboard display?
Check
Microsoft XBox Kinect software/hardware for the motion sensing?
Check

Yup, it'll be on WP7 first when it comes and MS already has the patents!

This is not a new idea lazer keyboard is being worked on my many companies and holographics im sure everyone is working on. I want apple to be the last company on earth to have this tech. They have proven that they dont fight fair and would take this to the court like everything else. It is a great concept but F*ck Apple, as a company, not thier products and design. Just f*ck steve jobs and his legal team.

Seriously, NO. Ugly. The screen goes to the edge on each side, but there's a big ugly bezel at the top and bottom. Fail.

Laser keyboards were shipping in 2004. Holos in mid-air have been done in SF movies such as Star Wars, but good luck doing it without a cloud of smoke to project into.

People don't realize that if the phone is too thin it's very uncomfortable to hold specially when you're typing or playing games, just look at the ipod touch 4th generation.
