In Summary

Philippe Starck and Jerome Olivet designed a phone that breaks all conventional design features and operational modes of current day smartphones. Mimicking the ‘Alien’ head the so-called ‘Alo’ smartphones use voice activated controls 3D holographic projections & many other odd features.

Next Generation Design

 

If you have watched Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’ you’d know how tomorrow’s smartphone world might be like. But Philippe Starck and Jerome Olivet made something that’s a step ahead of tomorrow. The ‘Alo’ smartphones host a design feature that you might have only seen in some science fiction movies. The phones morphology shall be compared to the head of 1986 movies ‘Aliens’ or something similar. But the features are rather astounding than an Alien, though. A voice activated control system, which no physical keys that allow you to use your phone more like Jarvis. And yeah indeed there is a 3D holographic projection which serves the purpose of a screen.

 

The odd features

 

Indeed, like all other smartphones ‘Alo’ phone also have a camera, but its prompt to call it an eye. The phone's camera reads texts, detect and identify faces meaning it's literally our third eye! The holographic projector can display messages, maps, and even play videos and movies. That’s not all of it, User can communicate with the interface using voice commands, vibrations and weirdly, heat! Yes, you read it right, the phone’s core is made up of an Aluminum alloy, which communicates using vibrations and the temperature gradient. Also, the phone’s body is more like a skin which could self-repair on minor damages! However, you can’t expect this phone anywhere near, it's still in the testing phase and might require several of improvement before getting market ready.

 

What are we looking at?

 

Okay, now you might be confused enough. Are we talking about some living creature or a smartphone? Indeed, an upcoming smartphone itself. In the current as well as previous mobile technology, the user interface was limited to just text, touch, key inputs, fingerprints etc. Now the conduit channeling communication is expanding in order to accommodate a more lively interaction between smartphone and its user. The Alo device would fit comfortably inside your palm but employs a much powerful processor to run all these tasks. Mainly the implementation of latest AI & Nanotechnology might be the reason for improving performance and shrinking size. The translucent, gelatinous phone is more like a living being on our palm that seems to have an integrated chip on it. With future AI it would really difficult to distinguish responses between man-made and machine-made!
