NEC has some most interesting Ubiquitous Networking Devices Visualized by Designers.
After going through the whole site, these devices stimulated my neurons & excited me very much, as i am crazy about the mind blowing Technovation.
Lets share and learn together.
Whats your imagination about the product’s?
A Pen-style Personal Networking Gadget Package
It seems that information terminals are infinitely getting smaller. However, we will continue to manipulate them with our hands for now. We have visualized the connection between the latest technology and the human, in a form of a pen. P-ISM is a gadget package including five functions: a pen-style cellular phone with a handwriting data input function, virtual keyboard, a very small projector, camera scanner, and personal ID key with cashless pass function. P-ISMs are connected with one another through short-range wireless technology. The whole set is also connected to the Internet through the cellular phone function. This personal gadget in a minimalistic pen style enables the ultimate ubiquitous computing.
Ubiquitous media chip.
In this service proposal, RFID chips hold the usage rights to images and music available on the network. The chips are covered in a gummy capsule, and are edible after use. When the play unit is connected to the container, the basic unit, it can be used as an audio player. By setting it in the cradle connected to the display through wireless LAN, users can also enjoy visual contents. The chips are sold in packages just like candies. Blank chips on which users can allocate data will also be available.
Visual Memory in a Bracelet.
Just like our memories come alive when we take our favorite objects in our hands, visual memories and their tools should be more closely related. The performance of visual memory devices, such as resolution and memory, will eventually reach their usability saturation points. However, just like wearing wristwatches, they will be worn like accessories rather than highly functional tools. Looking into the landscape through an opening, this bracelet will capture visual images in the angles adapting to the distance from the viewers’ faces through distance sensors installed in the device. Furthermore, users can browse through the visual images on its viewer and also display them just like a picture frame.
Soft-shell mobile phone.
“tag” is a new, malleable, casual communicator. It is not only soft but also flexible, for example, it can be hung from a belt or wrapped around the user’s arm. Shape-memorizing material and multiple pressure sensors allow the phone to change its shape according to the mode. The user can also alternate the mode by changing the shape.
