It’s funny how we go on and on about what tomorrow will hold as far as technology. We try to predict it with infographics or try to make top 100 lists of the most possible features that might come in the next version of things. Sure, it’s a heck of a lot of fun to see how many you manage to pinpoint, but the fact remains that once the technology hits the market, it’s already old if you think about it. The way it’s available to everyone makes it yesterday’s technology cause by the time you hold it in your hand, the manufacturers already have tomorrow’s technology on the way.

A few years ago, I had a friend whose uncle worked at Windows Vista, and among executives, it was the kick ass thing (but history tells a different story). However, by the time it was released, there was already talk at Microsoft that it was a dud and that they had made the thing too graphic dependent, which in turn made the whole thing slow and unreliable. Their answer was that they had predicted computers would be faster, and that they would be able manage the load on the processors. But, as we all know they went on to make Windows 7 instead.

However, that’s not the story here. We’re talking about tomorrow’s technology. So what can we expect from the future when it comes to cell phone technology? Well, to say that I know would be to full on lie straight in your face, but also, it would be quite insane to say that we need to expect it to be all hardware technology that we have already seen, but a little bit reworked. As a matter of fact, the future might hold something way more cool. If you ask concept designer Chengyuan Wei, the answer will be “paper” and “origami” in the same sentence as a cell phone.

I agree that it’s quite weird, but after watching what he has come up with, I totally see the use for it. All of those cheap cell phones with cash cards in them don’t have to be hardware anymore. They are used sparsely anyway, and for the people who are just looking to buy a phone to use while visiting a different country for a little while longer than a vacation, the need for a full on cell phone is kind of to overdo it a little bit. Therefore, the paper origami cell phone is the perfect disposable cell phone. Once you don’t need it anymore, you can just rip it up, and you’re good to go. No one can use it anymore. Now that I just wrote that, it seems the whole world is going disposable… is that even a good thing?
