I just gave myself an assignment:
Since this whole gadget market has been flooded by tablets and smartphones, I was wondering if it might be possible to make both of them work in a single form. Tho this is the main problem, I don’t know how I could make up something that could be a tablet and a smartphone. The main issue, as always, is the screen.
We like it when we can use the smartphone to call someone, since it has a decent size, and it fits our palm. Yet we also want to read the local newspaper on the go, yet we need 2 hands and a bigger screen.
I’ll just write a couple of other ideas in my head: I kept them as some sort of sketch.
Needs: -Phone stuff -Media -Reading -Agenda/planning -security (we don't want a thief to take it from our hands. What do we have at our disposal: -Phone/tablet -Headphones: wire or wireless Issues: -Screen size -portability -safety. Current influences: http://walyou.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/foldout_screen_flip_phone3.jpg Ideas: -2 screens,one over another; it can slide/rotate 90* --if we have the latter, how would we make it so that the screens wouldn't have issues such as breaking, getting dirty, etc. --if we have the former, then how could we make it slide with no issues? -Flexible phone?: http://walyou.com/philips-fluid-smartphone-with-flexible-oled-display/
And kinda that’s it. I’d really love a big brainstorming on this.
