Aston Martin have developed a transparent concept phone with Mobiado (a luxury cellphone manufacturer from Canada), the CPT002, which can integrate with your car (provided it’s an Aston Martin). While it is a concept, this phone could soon be a reality in the marketplace.
The concept phone is made up of two vertical platinum pillars which support the crystal display screen, whilst the surface of the screen is touch-sensitive and turns a “milky” colour when in use. Aston Martin said “Mobiado’s thoughts on how hypothetically one day phones could potentially interact with other technologies” and they have a few great concepts like the following: as soon as the phone is in range of the matching Aston Martin, the doors could automatically unlock and a connection to the display in the car can be made; the phone could use information, including GPS details, which can then be shared on FourSquare social community or feed to online parking spot finder assistance programs; and a camera in the Aston Martin vehicle can take videos or photos which can also then be automatically posted on Facebook or Twitter through the phone.
The phone has got to be one of the most incredible looking concepts, so we can only hope it makes it to the production phase… and soon.
