Plica, The Dual Touchscreen Phone
James Piatt’s Plica concept phone really takes the idea of a “phone” and throws it out the window. Looking like a cross between a iPhone and a micro laptop, it doubles the touchscreen real estate for a much easier browsing experience. Fold it in half and you have a hand held communication device. Flip it open, and it’s a tiny computer. A keyboard can be assigned to either screen in both portrait and landscape mode. A camera, USB port and headphone jack are all wrapped into the design as well. The only question being asked about the Plica, is how to fit a decent battery within its small frame. Really nice ideas here. Add some sort of tactile feedback and an accelerometer, and you might be looking at the future must-have device.
