Famous French designer Philippe Starck has created Alo, a concept for the smartphone of the future, it will use holograms and the camera will recognize objects
What will the smartphones of the future look like? Philippe Starck, the French designer also famous for his spatially designed juicers, has tried to come up with a personal vision of future devices. We will use smartphones without keyboards, with holograms, flexible and with the most disparate shapes.
Alo, the smartphone of the future. Starck has called his project Alo, and at first glance more than a smartphone comes to mind a designer shoehorn. The smartphone will be built inside a curved aluminum shell to fit the user's hand and head. The entire shell will be covered with a flexible and transparent polymer that extends throughout the body of the smartphone up to the antenna and speakers to improve sound quality. It will be a material capable of self-repair and will know how to interact based on heat or vibration and can even adapt based on the materials it comes in contact with.
How will Alo work, the flexible smartphone
Alo has no physical keyboard or touch sensors and every command is done using voice. Starck criticized the current manufacturers because they are focusing everything on screens, which however are a limitation for the original design of smartphones. Although to tell the truth, his design for Xiaomi Mi Mix is practically a full-screen smartphone. In Alo however will only use holograms and will have a dual camera that will be able to recognize faces and objects. La batteria utilizzerà una speciale tecnologia che permetterà la ricarica del dispositivo in pochissimo tempo.
Chi realizzerà Alo
Alo non è il primo progetto di Philippe Starck. Il designer francese, come detto in precedenza, ha già firmato con il suo stile inconfondibile lo Xiaomi Mi Mix, il primo smartphone con uno schermo che occupa oltre il 90% della parte frontale del device. Ma per il momento ovviamente si tratta solo di un disegno per un prototipo. Sul quale comunque lavorerà l’azienda francese Thomson.
