It’s very likely that this is not the Apple Tablet interface, but in case it is, we’re surely pleased to see it. Imagine a combination between iPhone OS, Mac OS X and HTC TouchFLO 3D, with a little bit of something extra. The UI is very finger-friendly and proposes a new way of unlocking a tablet PC:

The user will manage the device with his thumbs, as he holds the tablet with his two hands. The unlock screen shows essential info, like the time, date, weather info, a calendar and an unique system of unlocking the tablet.

Afterwards, you get a glimpse of the product’s interface and know that there are two virtual sliders used for unlocking, one on the left and one on the right side, depending on which hand you use.

Presenting the next generation of Apple IPhone, designer Fabio Merzari has popped up a cellphone concept that can be used either opened or closed, letting the users change the dimensions of the mobile handset. Dubbed the “RFR IPhone Next,” the next-gen mobile phone integrates a transparent display formed by two OLED screens with lots of shape memory alloy, which when in closed configuration rolls neatly within the case.

As soon as you touch the screen, the icon pops-up on the display to allow multi-layer effect, while multi-colored illumination that adjusts according to light conditions ensures easy access of info to the users. Featuring the body finished in aluminum, the RFR IPhone Next also touts a massive 128 GB memory and comes integrated with Ichat 5 Mpx camera.

iSpazio’s Antonio De Rosa created a very interesting iPhone 4G 3D concept, that you can see in the following images. There’s even a video at the end of the article, if you want a more detailed video on this futuristic iPhone design. There was an older version of the concept, that has now been redone by its creator, with rounded shapes and corrected errors.

This iPhone 4G concept packs an AMOLED touch display, a front camera, iPhone OS 4.0 with iChat, a Remote TouchControl feature and a glowing logo on the rear panel. There’s also a stand accompanying the device, called AluStand, also shown in the images below.

The very slim and evolved iPhone 4G comes with a rounded design and a very promising look, plus neat features. Great work, Antonio!

We are not sure if Apple has a netbook simmering this year, but if it looks anything like the above concept, they can be sure they have a winner in the mini-notebook segment too.  The above concept was designed by Adam Benton for MacFormat and looks like an iPhone that’s had one too many meals and runs iPhone OS 3.0.

The entire Home directory will be stored on a Apple cloud server and frequently used files are cached locally.  For charging, the netbook can be docked and also connected to a variety of devices using its USB and FireWire ports.  Integrated 3G connectivity to keep in sync with the Apple servers and Bluetooth A2DP audio profile round out its wireless options, and for those reticent about using the virtual keyboard, a hardware keyboard can also be paired via Bluetooth.

Sounds nice, right?  Let us wait and see if Apple has something that matches this concept or ups the ante a bit more.

Each time we spot a concept cellphone that addresses the needs of hearing or sight impaired people, we’re really impressed by the fact that not everyone is focused on high-end features, but also the disabilities of those less fortunate than us. Pratt student Suhyun Kim created the Visual Sound mobile phone, destined to reach the hands of hearing impaired uses.

Her Visual Sound is a mobile phone for the hearing impaired that converts voice input to text and text input to voice. The design features two handy pillars that scroll sideways to expose the roll-out display. To communicate, the impaired person feeds in the text onto the touchscreen display, which gets converted to voice simulation for the person on the other end of the phone and vice versa.

Using this concept cellphone is fairly basic: you input text via the touchscreen display and it gets converted to voice, reaching the person at the other end of the line. Simply great!

Talk about futuristic phone.  This time we’re dealing with a device that seems take directly from Minority Report, as it uses a holographic display. The Zero concept phone was designed by Josselin Zaïgouche and it’s a pretty regular device, till you join its two equal sides in a single square.

This one is literally a different take on the design of a mobile phone. The Zero Concept Phone isn’t shaped like a zero, but it’s a square box with two equal sides that connect to each other. When these two sides are together, the hollow part in the middle becomes the transparent holographic display for the phone. You can make calls or do other tasks on the screen hologram of the Zero phone. When the two sides are open, the phone works as a normal telephone and there is no screen. The Zero concept phone looks to be something straight out of a futuristic sci-fi movie.

The pace with which technology is progressing in modern era, we can’t even visualize the form and functioning of the gadgets in the days to come. Now we don’t have any other option than to bank on the vision or insight of the designers, giving the glimpse of futuristic technology and gadgets.

Are you one of those futuristic beings who thinks touch screens are passe?  Then let me present you with a concept designed by French designer Josselin Zaïgouche, made for Apple, who are hoping to launch it by 2020. It’s aptly called Black Hole, and it incorporates holographic and levity techniques to control its functions, applications and usage.

To add more variety to the usage of  the Black Hole, it is designed in such a way that once it’s connected to the charging base, it can be used as a desktop device – opening up a plethora of possibilities, especially in confined spaces. It’s like a crystal ball, without the big fat crystal, and it’ll just fit in the palm of your hand.
