‘Brick’ concept phone shows off some cool ideas for a transparent display

‘Brick’ concept phone shows off some cool ideas for a transparent display
Designers Shaocheng Huang and Yuyin Huang have released a concept video for a new see-through device called Brick. The corner stone of the device is the transparent display that can support a variety of functions.

In the video you can see the Brick being used as a camera, a magnifying glass, a translate tool, and even a file being swiped from one Brick to another.

On the official website, Yanko Design, the Brick is pitched as a PC that goes by the mantra “a PC is no longer a PC anymore.” In reality it looks closer to a phone’s size and with some of the potential features of this device, it would be really cool to see this turned into a smartphone.

a few companies will make it and it will sell a bit. then in 6 years apple will 'invent' it and it will revolutionize everything 'again'

I agree Apple will take 6 long years by then Samsung will rule the phone industry ,by the way Apple didn't invent anything just copy and that's a fact

It's a fact because you are an expert on everything?

Hey, apple already invented "the brick". Really, they just label it as an iPhone, but in reality, it has the same usability of a brick

If you want to see bricks, go watch pro basketball and watch overpaid athletes shooting "bricks".

So I take it they plan to pack all of the internals into the bottom panel bezel? That's a lot of tech to pack into a small space, not to mention the battery. It could be a while before technology shrinks enough to be that small. Would be cool tho!

They could make a bigger bezel.
