Nanoparticles - nearly invisible objects predicted to revolutionize the bio medical, optical and electronic fields of the near future. Russian designer Ilshat Garipov decided to come up with the Smartphone Booklet – a disposable phone as thin as a cardboard made possible by using nanoparticles instead of traditional silicon.
The Booklet unfolds like a pamphlet, designating each "page" with a commonly used App or program expansion. Manufacturers would be free to trim it for any size as users will readily be able to discard it for recycling when parts wear out. Discretion of privately stored information would be a non-issue due to the usage of a Cloud-based account. Power is then supplied by SOLAR energy by absorbing nanoparticles.
How far are we to gaining this technology?
It's already currently being queued in R&D companies.
Here's an excerpt of the Designer:
Sometimes, designers Come to Mind Different Thoughts about What Awaits us in the Future. As will look, for example, the usual things-cell phones, Tablet PC.
This is such a versatile one-time smartphone as a booklet of clever material. The whole idea is based on this material of the future - cheap compacted mixture that includes a base (something like cardboard), and only the "smart" nanoparticles that are uniting in various combinations form the computing power, as well as modern analogues of microphones, speakers, displays and etc. / This is such a versatile smartphone in disposable Booklet form made of Clever material. The Whole on this idea based Future material - Cheap compacted Mix That includes a base (something like Cardboard), and the "smart" nanoparticles That CAN Uniting in Various COMBINATIONS to create computing Power, Microphones, Speakers, etc and Displays.
The booklet can be any length and is one computationally visualizing volume. It can be separate sheets, each sheet is a full-featured smartphone with a 100% and the viewing surface of the computational power, reduced in proportion to the total volume of the booklet. / Booklet CAN be Various lengths and Computational Volume. You can detach sheets and each sheet will be a full-featured smartphone with a 100% visualizing surface and computational power reduced in proportion to the total volume of the booklet.
Usage Scenarios: / Usage scenarios:
2. On each piece can be hung or program has its own task / Sheet Each CAN ITS Contain Own Task or program.
3. You can share data files, or donate part of the booklet (with your music, for example) to a friend. Leaf is torn off by assigning him a specific function - the player, memory card, business card, a TV, a portfolio, and so on. / You CAN data Files Share, or Give Part of the Booklet to a friend. Assign a function of one sheet (player, memory card, business card, TV, portfolio, etc.) And detach it.
4. Material properties can be changed on demand throughout the area or local - for example, pull a leaf, choose a property of stickiness on the one hand and lepish it to the head from ear - spoke, he pressed on the corner - a leaf is no longer sticky and fell off. / Material Properties CAN be changed on demand Throughout the area or local. For example - detach a sheet, choose a property of stickiness on the one side and stick it to your ear. Now it's handsfree. Press on the corner - a sheet will no longer sticky and fell off.
5. Worn booklet you can just throw out - a biodegradable material. All information, music, video, photos, an image of your smartphone, stored on a cloud server and is easily installed on the cover, the newly acquired (which, incidentally should be very cheap). / Worn Booklet CAN safely be Disposed. This material is biodegradable. All information, music, video, photos, an image of your smartphone, stored on a cloud server and is easily installed on the newly acquired blank booklet (which, incidentally should be very cheap).
