The Next Mobile Leap Forward: Fold-out Screens and Apps That Anticipate Our Needs
What do our future mobile devices look like and what will they do?
The NY Times checks in with numerous innovators in the mobile space – teams at technology incubators like SRI International, PARC and MITs Media Lab, as well as designers and technologists at companies like Nokia and Intel - to discover what we can expect from our phones in the future. While they might not look radically different than we’re currently accustomed to, the next big advances in hardware and software might happen sooner than we think.
Just imagine a device with an 8-inch fold-out screen, a big virtual keyboard for easy text input, numerous sensors to detect your surroundings, and software smart enough to anticipate your needs and sharp enough to respond to conversational commands.
