Wow, def the uncanniest valley for those fingers, yeah …
Now if that were her phone/spacesuit interface; and the only other thing she was wearing was a white unitard and a force field…
You know you’re not in Kansas anymore when you read a sentence like: “A woman with uncanny valley fingers showed off the phone watch of tomorrow.”
Btw, does this blow up when you leave the house?
Tracking bracelets- not just for grizzly bears and sex offenders anymore!
Here’s an AT&T ad from 1994 for the amusingly titled “strap-on phone”:
If it’s not a cybernetic implant, it’s not futuristic enough for me.
Eeek! that pinky is scary.
the uncanny valley holds for hands.
Fluorescent display? They’re not being ambitious enough for a mock-up. This ain’t the 70s! Where is the OLED or e-paper display?
georgelazenby, funny, I hadn’t noticed until I saw your comment. The arm and back of palm was convincing to me, until I noticed the fingers.
It’s bulky, and not made of OLED.
So, sorry, but it’s not a future phone.
This however might be: http://www.telecoms.com/itmgcontent/tcoms/news/articles/20017508482.html
It looks like something from the Buck Rogers TV show, so it is definitely not the future.
If the phone WERE a cufflink, that would be cool. Anything bigger is useless to me.
this wrist phone idea needs to be marketed to runners.
Clever idea but it’s just too bulky.
