Here is a very grounded look at what can be the future of a Google Nexus Smartphone. The concept – Google Nexus 360 – is rooted in reality and can be commercially viable in a couple of years, if we put our minds to it. The concept hopes to eliminate the need for multiple devices and takes wearable tech to the next level.
Inspired by innovative technologies like Molex, Dai Nippon Printing, Solicore and LG, this Google concept transforms from a mobile phone into a wearable Smartwatch device.
- Flexible polymer OLED display: offers great usability and vibrant visuals.
- Embedded Bluetooth headset: can be docked on the side of the device, and draws power from it for charging.
- An integrated fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor: take care of security, health monitoring and sleep tracking. Integrated sensors and apps capture related data.
- A tube camera that’s on your wrist: makes shooting easy, and allows snapping pics from different angles. The same high-resolution camera doubles up as primary camera, along with shooting selfies.
- Always-on e-ink display on the side: makes sure users don’t miss out on notifications.
- Designed for all-weather use: IP67-certified for resistance to the elements.
