The Future of Mobile Computing

I'd Take My "Looking Glass" With Me Everywhere

I have come to realize how handy it is to have an iPhone attached to my hip at all times. Because of its fast Internet and cool apps, I can find almost anything, anytime, anywhere. But realistically, as awesome as it is, my iPhone can't tell me absolutely everything. It certainly can't show me how to get to my three o'clock meeting via a 3D-floor plan, scan objects for fingerprints, and wirelessly transfer photos from my computer.

But if this picture into the future above is any indication, we might be able to learn things we never have before with something called a "Looking Glass" – similar to the "Magical Windows" discussed months ago – which seems to be a mobile computer complete with a camera, scanner, touch screen, WiFi accessibility, and photo analysis — all in one sleek device in a form we all know and (most of us) love.




To see why I would be the first on my block to pick up my own "Looking Glass",


Just imagine sitting down to lunch with the girls, and whipping out your "Looking Glass" to find out how many calories are in that basket of onion rings, or holding up the device to the stars, and having it tell you what constellations are in your sky. Amazing, right? I thought so, too. Here's to the future.

I would love this, If there is already a design then more than likely this would be a reality soon, but with much of the new things that come out it would probably be expensive and have bugs lol.

Hmmm, what a cool concept. I bet it will be a reality in a few months, knowing technology nowadays!

I saw this on Yanko design. I love the idea and see a lot of it already with mobile phone features. I think the hardest part would be the visual analysis, but working with gps would make a lot of it easier. I can't wait for this to be real, even if it only does half of what the concept does.
