Concept designer Mac Funamizu hopes his very Minority Report-ish mobile internet ‘looking glass’ concepts pictured in this gallery will be the form mobile devices take moving into the future. Pretty impressive stuff – but could a gadget ever have that much processing power? Either way, cool to dream about. In Funamizu’s own words:
This is what I wish the internet search will be able to do with a mobile device in the NEAR future. Touch screen, built in camera, scanner, WiFi, google map (hopefully google earth), google search, image search… all in one device. Like this way, when you can see a building through it, it gives you the image search result right on the spot.
This set of concepts won the Reddot Design Award in 2009.
