How many people carry a laptop with them? Most of them, isn’t it? That’s where I wanted to reach… technology portability.We take the technology with us by phone, laptop, tablet and all kind of gadgets to keep us informed, in contact with our friends or business. SONY, always having a vision to the future, thought to upgrade the concept of portability gadget technology and will provide us with NEXTEP, a gadget concept that will change the perception about reality.
Our need for internet connectivity is so profound that secondary devices like NEXTEP computer are bound to happen. Designed to be worn as a bracelet, the concept is based on a flexible OLED touch screen. Earmarked for 2020, features like holographic projector, pull-out extra keyboard panels and social networking capabilities, make the concept plausible. Eight years from now it’s not too far, so how many of you think we will actually be buying such gadgets?
When we think about mobile computing right now, we picture all sorts of different netbooks, laptops, and even tablets at this point. And, while some watches out there offer up Bluetooth capabilities to show our text messages, we want something better. A lot better. And thanks to the crazy minds at Sony, it looks like 2020 is the target date to get us what we want. The NEXTEP Computer concept is completely designed to be worn on your wrist like a watch – so much so, in fact, that its OLED panels are of the touchscreen nature, but are completely flexible to shape around your wrist.
The futuristic device by SONY called NEXTEP computer and designed by Hiromi Kirik from Japan is equipped with a flexible touch-screen based on organic light-emitting diodes. It has a holographic projector and retractable touch-sensitive keyboard and it is assumed that SONY NEXTEP Computer will focus on communication in social networks and more than that, you can fold out the NEXTEP Computer and place it on the table to answer your emails, Instant Messages, tweet news, upload photos or whatever else you need to do on your mobile watch computer. This concept aims at not only small, handy and great technology at our disposal, but also aesthetically superlative, because it can be worn as a bracelet that changes color depending on clothes changed daily.
Of course, it is not perfect and there are many problems to think of and to improve. There are some questions about durability of the device, especially if you take into account the fact that it is worn on the wrist – this is not quite safe, because the device is exposed to such negative factors as water (sweat, rain) and mechanic damage. So, will you buy it? MAKE. BELIEVE. “SONY”
