Sometimes designers come to mind different thoughts about what awaits us in the future. Hence, designer Ilshat Garipov put pen to paper and came up with the Smartphone Booklet – a disposable phone as thin as a cardboard made possible by switching from traditional silicon to nano particles. The whole idea based on this future material – cheap compacted mix that includes a base (something like cardboard), and the “smart” nano particles that can uniting in various combinations to create computing power, microphones, speakers, displays and etc.
The Booklet unfolds like a pamphlet with each side representing a commonly used application or function. Manufacturers can cut it to any size and once it’s worn out, just recycle it. Don’t worry about private information because everything is served from a cloud. Power is supplied by, SURPRISE, the sun thanks to energy absorbing nano-particles. [source]
Here are some mockups of how the Smartphone Booklet will work:
1. Each sheet can contain its own task or program
2. You can buy various volume of the booklet (or various power and memory capacity)
3. You can share data files, or give part of the booklet to a friend. Assign a function of one sheet (player, memory card, business card, TV, portfolio, etc.) аnd detach it.
