The extent, to which the design can be changed and the possibility of a smartphone, after, say, 10 years? Known for his unconventional vision, the designer Philippe Starck, together with Jerome Olivier presented his vision of “the future tube” called Alo in ergonomically sleek translucent body. In the understanding of the authors, the smartphone will not require the display, interface role will perform 3D-projector, creating holographic images in the air. Manage the device will be available only via voice control, based on the advanced AI. Any additional controls in the form of buttons, connectors, and other things not provided. Is that camera eye that can recognize faces and read from his lips what he wants to say – seek contact or write a message on their own do not have to, a smartphone will do everything himself. Feedback to the owner carried out by means of vibration and temperature changes.
Despite the fact that Alo is just a concept, designers are planning to release a smartphone prototype with the assistance of the French company Thomson.
