King Arthur rightly said “The old order changeth yielding place to new”. This age old idiom is the eternal truth. It is applicable to everything. We have seen great changes occur within a generation and it is more so applicable to gadgets and gizmos.
TheAppleGoogle continues its quest on “imagineering” and would like to bring to present the gadget of the future – the new iHoldFree.
Concept iHoldFree will mark the convergence of all gadgets and technology under one platform. Wearing the gadget on your hands would enhance portability and open up a whole new world of Apps and functionalities.
Fingertips Touch Keyboard – It features bubble based, touch sensitive and skin thin wearable pads. Each Metacarpal of the finger would represent an alphabet, alphanumeric or a symbol as per the keypad.
Voice Recognition – Inbuilt Mic which would support. Features such as Voice to text would help dial numbers, send emails and write up an article. The gadget would become your personal digital assistant and would mark the beginning of a whole new era in technology.
2 Estate LED backed LCD display screens – Two 2.6 inch bright LED back-lit LCD Displays with IPS technology to be placed on reverse side of both palms. Alternatively, to allow free use of the palm, the LCD’s can be worn as watches on the wrists of both the hands. Bluetooth connecting its two screens with each other.
Touch screens – The LCD’s on the palm of your hand or on the back of it would be touch enabled which would further help while playing games and interacting with apps.
Mobile – Of-course, this would be mobile. Your hand goes wherever you go. As this would fit your hands you could take in anywhere. Mobile also implies that this would be a phone. You could send an SMS, MMS or even call a person.
Front facing camera - A 3MP front facing camera for video calls and video conferences. Exponential increase in the number of Apps. Skype and note taking apps would dominate the apps market.
OS – That’s a tough one. Designing an OS for a small screen could be a tough and laborious job, if Apple plans to deliver this unique gadget they could very well run iPhone OS on it. Otherwise, Microsoft Windows Mobile and Android could be good.
Accelerometer – An inbuilt accelerometer would mean that you could work on it either horizontally or vertically.
Processor – The main and the foremost requirement of iHoldFree would be faster speed and multitasking. The new Snapdragon 1GHz processor which is used on the Nexus One could be great for such a device as it needs to handle many bluetooth connections together and Apps would altogether require a fast and snappy processor.
Graphics – nVidia’s Tegra is a graphics processor designed for mobile devices and would be definitely be great on the iHoldFree.
Ultra Slim- Slimmer than an iPad. Water and sweat proof – Would not stop functioning even if immersed in water. Sweat too wouldn’t affect it. Light weight as it would be based on ultra light super conducting nano material.
Recently Apple even hired Richard DeVaul, a veteran of the wearable computing field and co-founder of Aware Technologies, a technology company focused on creating products for the fitness and “wellness” markets.
