Body Electrics

It was this concept art that drew me into the Neonode exhibit, since (to be honest) I’d never heard of them before. But the art is pretty sweet, albeit (they insist) only a concept. If you’re not seeing anything out of the ordinary yet, look at her hand and his headphones. Convenient, right?

Neonode is also demoing a cellphone that they’re going to release commercially in summer of this year, called the N2. It’s smaller than a credit card and weighs only 60 grams. The interface is a 176×220 touchscreen (which is all the rage now, of course) but unlike the iPhone, the touchscreen of the N2 is not heat dependent, so it’ll work if you’ve got gloves on. Look for it this summer, but they’re not saying what network yet.

  1. This might be a bit off topic but the nice thing about buying new electronics is they have a warranty. You are buying something that has moving parts or electricity going to it so it has the potential of breaking, there is nothing you can do but replace it, that does not mean the company that made the product sucks, it means the individual item sucked!
