“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it”-Albert Einstein
I can’t imagine a life without a smartphone, no one can, they are entertaining, handy and elementary need for richest and deprived of the world. Over time evolved with a better screen, processor, camera, and Apps they offer thousands of possibilities. Here are 5 Incredible Future Smartphone Ideas to make your life Easy in the near future.
1). Holy Grail of Battery Life Discovered with Nano Technology Based Lithium Batteries (4 times long-lasting)- The thing everyone hate about cell phones is when you have to make that important phone call to someone urgently. The battery shows you the red warning sign to go and plug it to a charger which is never in sight when most needed. What if the cell phone batteries run for 3-4 times longer, it would make my work easy.
Nano Technology Engineers around the world have been attempting to design small, low-cost more efficient & long-lasting rechargeable batteries to meet the power storage needs of everything from handheld gadgets, wearable’s, smart watches to electric cars.
A recent breakthrough, published few days back in the Nature Nanotechnology, researchers at Stanford University report that they have taken a big step toward accomplishing what battery designers have been trying to do for decades – design a pure Lithium anode battery.
What we actually have are lithium-ion batteries. The lithium is in the electrolyte, but not in the anode. An anode made up of pure lithium would be a huge boost for battery life and we can expect more than 3-4 times increase in the battery life. If this get evolved and comes to commercial use will be incredible discovery after many years of using Li-ion based batteries. The best part is, we will not require the Ultra power saving modes and battery saving tips anymore.
2). Google Gesture: The idea has the power to transform the life of people. Google gesture is a concept which is being developed to help a special section of society and break the language barrier. This is going to be one of the best innovation if it is made available commercially and in low-cost smartphones. Google gesture converts the sign language to speech. It will be like giving voice to people who are unable to speak. Watch this amazing video understands what google gesture will be capable to do. Google Gesture transforming Lives:
3). Hotels will make you check in without delay using a smartphone- It felt like a major innovation back when, the traditional large metal hotel room keys were replaced with high-tech credit-card-style entry cards. You could slip it into your wallet for safe keeping. The cards made us feel that technology has made it way convenient for us, but now it will feel obsolete with a check in the option using android or iOS smartphone.
Hilton Hotels Worldwide recently announced a slew of technology upgrades across its hotel system that will turn guests’ smartphones into the keys for faster and easier check-ins. The idea is to create an ability to use a mobile device to check into a chosen room based on hotel’s digital floor plan and previous allotment. By the end of the year, this capability will be rolled out to over 4,000 Hilton properties around the world. It will work through the Hilton HHonors app for iOS and Android.
Likely in 2015, Hilton will begin rolling out the capability required to let phones unlock doors, letting guests skip the usual line-waiting and check-in process and head straight to their rooms. Most likely this will become a norm for many top-tier hotels in the next couple of years.
4). Self-Adjusting screens to get rid of reading glasses: It may sound far fetched, but it may turn out be a reality very soon. A team of researchers at the University of California are experimenting with a new type of screen technology, which could correct vision issues without the need for the viewer to wear glasses. The research is still in the early days, but a report published by the MIT Technology gives us a peek on how the technology will work.
A plastic screen with thousands of very small holes has been placed over an iPod Touch, on which special software adjusts the amount of light shown by each pixel. This means the device will control how light reaches your eyes, so it can artificially recreate a sharp image. It’s known as Light Field Display, and it’s best to think of it as a pair of glasses in reverse, because it understands how our eyes will try to distort what’s shown on the screen, and adjusts the picture to suit.
The screen would be required to tune to the viewer’s eyes, and more importantly, their focal length. Sit too close or too far away, and it may not work effectively. We can see Amazon Fire Phone-style eye-tracking tech being used to solve this, but apparently, we tend to move around naturally to bring images into focus too.
The scientist says it will require a much higher pixel density screen around 650-700 PPI, but this is beyond what we’re seeing on even the best smartphone screens out there the LG G3 has 538ppi in the current scenario. It is likely to happen with screen resolution getting higher in near future with mobile processors able to support such resolutions.
5). Managing Health, Money, Data, Weather & achieving total integration
Samsung came up with the S Health, Now Apple planning to monitor the user’s heart and record such data for future identification purposes while making banking transactions or protecting highly sensitive documents or data. Also apple is looking forward to adding Air pressure sensors to future devices to help hikers and mountain climbers to get the right data on altitude.
The most astounding feature will be to analyze the upcoming weather condition with change in air pressure and predict weather conditions with the changes in Air pressure, this would be very helpful on high altitudes for campers & mountaineers.
Total Integration your smartphone to do it all (The Universal Remote)– It may sound pure fiction, but we have seen in the past fiction & reality boundlessly merging with the power of human imagination.We use remotes for TV, DVD, Air-conditioning in car stereo and many other appliances with the development of wearables and integration of In car OS we can expect to use one single remote – the smartphone. To control all gadgets like seen in the recent Ubisoft Bestseller Game Watch Dogs.
You will not require separate keys to unlock your home or to start your car, your smartphone will interact with these devices. Cash (money) will become obsolete and a majority of transactions will be done through mobile money and mobile wallets, concepts are in development and with affordable smartphones it will become popular in future.
It looks like the wearable tech revolution is about to take off, and by the time 2022 comes around this could mean miniature devices on our glasses, wrists and clothing, sharing information with each other. The seamless integration will require that all the systems are able to speak one language and are able to communicate with each other, the possibilities are unlimited and Apple and Google and worldwide developers are exploring the concept’s to make it a real sooner than you can imagine.
