Since technology is becoming more and more human, the smartphones we have in the very near future might become more than just phones. There might be a day soon when we consider our mobile device to actually be our friend. They will know as much about our daily behavior as our best friend would, and it will be there for us always, physically and emotionally. It’s an interesting concept.
It doesn’t seem far-fetched to me. I’ve already written about how I sleep with my phone, and how I have a close relationship with my iPhone. It only makes sense to develop that further. If you aren’t a social media or iPhone addict, you should stop reading right now.
This is a concept phone developed by designer Julius Tarng. The best way I can describe it is that it’s a cross between a smartphone, a virtual pet, a robot and a best friend. It has its own mood avatar, and it gets sad when it’s almost out of power, and happy again when it has a full charge. It even learns your behaviors. For example, it adjusts your alarm automatically so you’ll wake up a little earlier if it detects you’ve been late to work lately (it knows by GPS). Check out the images below to see the full presentation about what this phone can really do. I really like the thought of technology becoming cozier, so I love this concept.
