Apple concept like a Google ARA project

January 27, 2015 by Laur | 0 comments

Like the Transformers movie, the future Apple iMac comes as a puzzle and can be used as an iMac, or MacBook and even an iPad. The innovative concept of Cristian Tomas Moyano proposes a different concept of Apple for the future with Awsome design and function. This concept keeps the electronic market trend, that making smaller devices with better capabilities every year. The Apple concept called lightMac, offer an amazing mobility and experience of tablets and the power of a desktop computer for the future.

iMac concept
This concept is similar to Google Ara Project but with bigger powerful components, creating a new range of options for users experience.
The central module and the external module combined offers the possibility to use it as an iMac. With a core i9 processor and 16 GB of RAM Memory, the central module is like a tablet beast. Also, the central module has a 4 TB Hard Disk memory, an advanced Bluetooth module 6.0, Wi-FI connection and about 24 hours of battery life and no screen!

Smartcall designed by Raees PK comes with a special function especially for those persons with hearing impaired problems. The watch is conceived to can make calls or to alert to speaking or to hearing impaired people. As we all known, a person with hearing impaired can’t hear a normal phone call or text alert. Smartcall is designed to work with two paired smartwatches with SIM slot or paired with a conventional phone through Bluetooth technology and a connected GPS.

Smartcall concept for impaired people
Olso the device could work for one non-impaired person and one impaired or for two impaired persons. To activate an alert between two impaired persons, is necessary to press and hold the call button and the other impaired person will receive a vibration feedback. In his technology, GPS will locate the direction of an alert and the Bluetooth will transfer the call to a vibration. The Bluetooth technology allows to make an alert to an entire group in the Bluetooth range also. The connection between an impaired person and a non-impaired one can be made by a smartphone application.
Smartcall can be called for impaired person a real help in the day to day life like the white stick is for blind people.

Nokia Embrace concept can beat Galaxy Round

January 25, 2015 by Laur | 0 comments

Nokia Embrace concept wants to be an interesting smartphone with high-end specifications. Embrace materials are, as Alyssa O’Neill designed, aluminium, sapphire glass, hyper glaze layer and plastic. Nokia Embrace could be a future competitor for Galaxy Round, having almost the same shapes. Embrace feature stereo speakers and a built in amplifier, and an updated Windows Phone UI. On the rear, Embrace will have fingerprint sensors and could be possible to be located in the right rear part for one-hand use.

Also, on the rear, Embrace has an “alien camera” and I meaning that will feature a 41 megapixel camera with 4K probably feature.
Also, Embrace has a new look, with a high-curve display, as the Samsung Galaxy Round has it. Another interesting thing in Nokia concept is that the display features a full touchscreen display. For never loose an important mail or text message, the concept has a built in LED on the touch screen zone, on the top of the phone. These notifications, appear for five seconds when are received, and then disappear. The home screen button is also, integrated into the touch screen zone, on the bottom of the phone. All four corners of the device are protected with silicone band. preventing the screen for falling situations.

OLED technology has been developed in the last past years a lot and in the present is not a big surprise to find OLED technology even in the automotive market. Continental AG, is a big German manufacturing company, and they shown that the OLED flexible display could be integrated in automotive domain, presenting a dual screen AMOLED flexible display made from one convex and one concave smaller displays, which is actually a secondary car display.

This two-pats display tested by Continental is made by LG or Samsung, both manufacturers having the flexible display technology finished. LG already signed a contract with the German car makers, like Daimler-Benz, for OLED panels, based on flexible plastic displays.

Olso, Samsung and Audi have a collaboration for the Audi Prologue prototype. Audi is using its prototype a bendable OLED display, which is designed to be used for climate control and vehicle settings. Samsung bendable display is a 226.56 mm x 141.6 mm with high resolution, 2560 x 1600 pixel. Prologue still having rigid panels but upgraded the technology with a 4K LCD for the front passenger. Audi has tested the OLED technology since 2012 in R18 prototype when installed AMOLED rear view mirrors

Flexible computers will be possible with Transistor improvements

January 23, 2015 by Laur | 0 comments

Paper-thin computer display could be flexible with the new transistor that are and will be improved in Japan at Japan’s National Institute of Material Science. This way, scientists, can incorporate any organic semi-conductors in a flexible display to amplify or improve a week signal.
OFETs (organic field-effect transistors) are designed to produce flexible devices or large screen electronics with a low-cost price. Light-emitting OFETs has been developed in 2003 and today registered a high stadium development, making a high step in developing a new display technology. LE-OFETs will be compatible with actually electronic technologies and has been used to develop a flexible, transparent computer screen. With LE-OFETs technology, those screens, will be a faster response, low energy consumption, better efficiency.

Flexible screen
If plastic memory will be developed, will be a major change on the flexible devices market and the OFETs will be the door opener to a higher flexibility. Scientists estimated that flexible computing devices will appear on the market in over ten years. In the present, there are issues with the actual technology that are using light-emitting and light-receiving transistors.
