There is no doubt that we live in a world of smart phones and dumb people (well, apart from you guys obviously), and as the world gets dumber, our phones keep getting smarter. In fact they are getting super, scary smart! Just the other day we were talking about how much our phones had changed since we got our very first mobile (or cell phone for our American readers), and how we could never have dreamed of all the amazing things we can now do with our phones. Its crazy, and it is only going to get crazier!
Smartphones are rapidly changing, becoming better, and more intelligent and in 10 years time, who knows what what these ‘Intelligent phones’ will be capable of, and more importantly, what will we wanted them to be capable of! We think it would be amazing to have a phone that could interact with your house and car, imagine being able to control everything from the moment your alarm goes off, without touching a thing! Coffee is ready, breakfast is served, your clothes for the day have been selected and by the time you open your door to go to work, your car is ready and waiting for you outside. All because you had programmed your phone to make it happen. Same when you get home, when your phone senses you are home, it has everything you could need ready and waiting for your return!
We know this technology sort of exists already, but it is not quite at the level which we need it to be. Same with voice control, it exists, but cant quite replace a personal assistant, but in 10 years time, that might be possible! Video calls also need an update, in 10 years time we want holographic phone calls, like in Star Wars! You lie your phone flat on the table, and a 3D holograph of your friend pops up, that you an actually interact wit. Imagine now cool that would be! We also think you should be able to capture and send smells, imagine being able to send your friends exactly what you were smelling in that moment, like fresh bread, or what ever you were cooking them for dinner!
As well as holographic capabilities, we think phones need an inbuilt projector, so that you can watch films, and project photos/and videos onto any flat surface, anywhere! Although we do actually love the shape of our phones, it would be cool if you could make them bigger or smaller, like grow them to the size of a newspaper, as well as shrink them down to the size of a USB stick, just by pulling and pushing at the edges! That way they would be so easy to carry around and you wouldn't have to worry about bulging pockets! Finally phones should be un-losable and un-stealable, so we think that each phone should be able to teleport directly into its owners hands via a bracelet that the user always wears. Left your phone upstairs? No worries, its just a push of button away! Someone stole it on a night out, one click and its back in your hands! Now that is an ‘Intelligent phone’! We got really over excited thinking about the technology of the future, and we really want to hear what you guys would want from your ‘Intelligent Phone’, let us know in the comments on here, and on Instagram!
