What technologies will receive smartphones after decades? Let's put on this topic.
Modern electronic gadgets are endowed with a huge number of all sorts of sensors and modules. It seems that smartphones have almost everything necessary. Surely the development of these devices ceased? No, it just slowed down. After 10-15 years, another technological jump will ensure. Let's imagine what smartphones can surprise such a long time.
Management of thoughts
As it is known, technology has been developed for many years when a person could give commands to the computer with his thoughts. Now for this you need to wear something like a helmet consisting of a variety of special sensors. At the same time, it is mentally able to give only the simplest teams. No games do not have any speech, not to mention the set of text or travel by sites. But we know that technology does not stand still.
The problem lies in the fact that our brain consists of millions of billions of neural compounds. The impulses that arise in them are incredibly difficult. And to handle them correctly in 100% of cases - this is not at all challenging task. Nevertheless, in the future, scientists can achieve their own. In this case, smartphones may well get a special chip that will remotely read the waves emitted by the user's brain. Of course, only certain commands will be "understood" by the system - for example, the inclusion of certain interfaces, changing the volume level, or the activation of a device included in the Smart Home. But it is better than nothing. It should be noted that the management of thoughts is faster and more convenient to traditional pressing of virtual buttons.
Real Wireless Charging
By air, it is possible to transmit not only thoughts, but also electricity. This proves modern wireless charging, which are supported by many smartphones. The misfortune is that they are not wireless in a true understanding of this word - the corresponding cable stretches to the outlet. Do not like people and the fact that the phone needs to put on a sufficiently small platform. I want to throw a device somewhere on the nightstand, desktop or bed, but in order to start charging at the same time. And ideally, the device should start receiving electricity immediately after the person crossed the threshold of his house. Is it possible to achieve this?
There are already technologies that allow you to transmit electricity by air to a distance of up to one or two meters. But scientists still need to work on the signal to stop jamming a variety of interference. Yes, and the distance needs to be slightly increased. The main problem is that for transmission of electricity while a huge metal plate is used - it is unlikely that she will have a place in the room of an ordinary person. However, no one doubts that in the future the energy will be learned to transmit ordinary outlets without wires. So far, only it is not clear when this is what happens.
Developments in this direction go on another way. Anyone has a lot of everyday movements. So why if at least some of them do not translate into electricity, gradually chargeing a smartphone? This is a good alternative to the current obtained from the CHP, HPP or NPP. But to solve such a task, you must first achieve a significant reduction in power consumption, and this is already harder.
The output of the holographic picture
in different fantastic films is regularly shown by how people look at the holographic picture. The image is literally hanging in the air, and it displays it often a portable device - for example, the same smartphone. In fact, holographic screens exist now. However, their energy consumption is very high - no nutrition from a modest battery and speech. They are also too massive to achieve their embedding in a portable device. Yes, and the quality of the holographic picture can be called only terrible. However, specialists from Red (producer of very expensive photographic equipment) are planning to release a smartphone with a holographic screen. What will happen to them - learn during 2018. It is possible that Fiasco will happen, and the device will never see the light, becoming another not justified by the device expectations.
However, in the future, the displays can really become holographic. However, it is unlikely that it will happen in 10 years. And such technology will not work out energy efficient. This means that it is necessary to achieve a significant increase in the capacity of the batteries. Alas, but there is no progress on this field of activity of scientists.
In the near future, the screens should not be holographic, but flexible. You can make them already now - the OLED technology is quite possible. Experienced samples of flexible displays exist quite a long time. Moreover, they are already being introduced into some TVs and smartphones. However, such devices themselves do not become flexible. This is explained by the fact that all other components remain solid.
For the smartphone begged at the request of the user, you need to make elastic and many other components of the device. While it is completely incomprehensible how to achieve flexibility from the battery - now any such manipulations with it will lead to fire or even an explosion. It is necessary to guess engineers over what should be the housing of the flexible smartphone. Rubber?
You can not doubt that R & D centers of large manufacturers of smartphones will achieve their own. Buyers need to amaze something. Flexible mobile phone is a good way to attract consumer attention. And a rare person will notice at such a moment that there is no point in creating such a smartphone. Do not wrap it around his wrist on the wast of hours...
Another problem facing scientists is wear resistance. You can theoretically release a flexible smartphone now, placing components under the case in a special way (the battery will consist of a plurality of individual parts). But permanent flexions of devices will inevitably lead to damage to the indoors that will be regularly drowned away from each other. Therefore, it is necessary to achieve not only flexibility, but also wear resistance. No one will buy a device designed for half a year to use it.
The quick and correct translation of the conversation
to develop in the future should also be the software part of the devices. In particular, the introduction of artificial intelligence will definitely improve the translation of oral speech. This will communicate to people from different countries, receiving almost synchronous translation. If you familiarize yourself with the selection of the best translators for Android, you will find that something similar some programs can already now. But while their translation sins by many errors, as applications are not able to adjust the pronunciation of a particular person.
Now all smartphones have a touchscreen display. From the mechanical buttons, manufacturers of such devices refused for a long time. However, it is impossible not to notice that in some cases the sensory control does not cope with its task. For example, when typing on a virtual keyboard, errors occur regularly - the finger from time to time flies past the right button. Even worse, the situation is in the games where you need clearly felt management bodies. Both problems in the future can solve electrovibration technology.
If the engineers bring their idea to mind, then someday touching the touch screen will begin to cause sensations of a texture. That is, the user will physically feel every key. Like on push-button mobile phones, only in this case all the keys will remain virtual - they will be located on the screen. And in some races or shooters, you can feel the joystick, located on the left, and the action buttons located on the right. The human brain will be deceived at the expense of electrostatic charges. By the way, such a technology should help and blind people - now they are if they enjoy smartphones, then with great difficulty.
Elektrovibration introduction can occur after 5-6 years. The relevant patents issued several companies, including the American Apple giant.
This is the incomplete list of technologies that smartphones can get in the future. Now they seem fantastic, but someday they will be considered banal. In the end, ten years ago, many people did not believe that the phones would recognize the person's face, and before unlocking the fingerprint was still distant. Only one should not wait for the introduction of the above-described technologies in the coming years - scientists have yet eliminated all obstacles that prevent it.
And what technologies are you waiting for? Perhaps you are able to come up with some more original function? We are waiting for your opinion in the comments.
