Interesting iPhone prototype concepts by Aatma Studio. Bonus: REAL LIFE “holographic display”.

Video: iPhone 5 Virtual Keyboard + Concepts

The video is created by Aatma Studio, a 3D animation, digital content, VFX production studio in San Francisco:

Amazing Concept iPhone 5. This CG iPhone 5 has advanced iPhone features such as a sleeker iPhone design, a laser keyboard & holographic display all rolled into this iPhone 5 video…

ObamaPacman’s thoughts:

  • Thickness / thinness: currently the ultra thin iPod touch cannot fit the better camera in the iPhone. An iPhone this thin will be years away.
  • Virtual “laser” keyboard: requires projector, sensitive camera (or laser beams), and real time image processing. Not happening anytime soon due to power and device space requirements.
  • Holographic projector: although it sounds like science fiction, you can actually buy a virtual holographic display now. Keep reading for a demo of the real world technology:

The product is Heliodisplay by io2technology. It weights 70 pounds (31 kb), at least 280w of power, and costs $48,000 USD for L90, and $68,000 USD for L90i (L90i has air-touch control). Judging for the weight and price, it might be slightly too bulky and pricy to fit into the 2011 iPhone 5.

But if a holographic projector gets incorporated in a future iPhone, years from now Samsung (if it’s still in business at the time) might Star Wars as prior art in Apple patent suit. Or maybe even this fictional iPhone 5 concept video by Aatma Studio will be used as ‘prior art.’ We’ll wait and see.

    I’d love to see this become reality, and especially if it’s only available on the iPhone or other iOS devices.
