Remember this scene from Iron Man 2?

“Boy, I’m good. I just commandeered your screens.”

This is going to be THE next big innovation in smartphone design.

Transparent display phones may seem like something that exist strictly within the realm of science fiction movies. But the day is not far away when anyone would be able to just walk into a local electronics store and pick up such devices for themselves. (For the lazier ones among us, there’s always Amazon :P)

For a couple of years now, electronics giants such as Samsung and LG have been chasing the Holy Grail of producing phones with diaphanous displays. They have achieved success but only upto a point.

Here’s a semi-transparent phone that LG launched in 2009.

It was called the GD 900 and it had a transparent dial-pad. It didn’t have a fully transparent form-factor but it showed the world that such devices could (and would) exist sometime in the near future.

The main issue that manufacturers are facing in making the entire device see-through is making all the internal components i.e. the wires, the capacitors, the processors, the camera sensor, the battery, etc. transparent.

Polytron Technologies, a Taiwanese electronics manufacturer, created a prototype in 2013 which featured a fully transparent display.

This one is much closer to the generic transparent phone we imagine. But as can be seen in the image above, the SD card, battery and other components are still glaringly visible.

Obviously, there is still some way for manufacturers to go before they manage to make completely see-through devices. But it will happen sooner or later.

When you take a good look at the best mobile phone today, it is so clumsy and infantile .. “Form and function” —- the function may be OK, but the form is all wrong ..

We should not be carrying a slab or brick with us .. The Google glass is on the right track, but we need a good one that works and is unobtrusive .. So that is big challenge No. 1
Then comes input to the device .. Once we solve this problem, then phone and PC would have merged into one .. as there is no need for separating them ..
if the ‘display’ is right in front of our eyes, we need to make it as if we are looking at a huge TV screen in front, similar to the fighter pilot info system picture ..
We need to input verbally, but somehow preserving the advantages of keyboard, that provide granular, gradual and deliberate composition of our messages [if we so desire] that the present day verbal input is unable to provide .. Personally I think it will be an AI which studies tons and tons of good classical writing and could take what we say in verbal input and present what the New York Times editors would have changed to .. and we select with our eyes’ gaze ..
More thoughts, anyone ?
