Future Thinking

1. Description

The name of our product is iTransformer.

The concept of iTransformer is for easier carrying, multiple usages, and human touch. By 2025, most people will choose this technology, since it is a choice to reduce losing of mobile phones, a choice to have 4D talking with contacts, a choice to have a ‘soft’ technology in daily life.

This technology, or to say, this kind of mobile phones with the specific technology allows users to ‘wear’ it in many situations. There could be many models for users to choose. A watch phone is no longer a novelty in 2025, but a watch phone with 4D technology build in could be a new trend for iTransformer lovers to follow. A phone that can bend and fold will increase a lot fun to users while they using their phones.

Based on past experiences, most people will feel tired in the shape or appearance of their mobile phones. Plate rolls users may want to have a clamshell phone or a slide phone. With iTransformer technology, people do not have to buy a lot of phones in order to fit in the fashion trend of mobile phones, they can buy only one chip, which looks like a SIM card in 2010, it is not only a user’s information and contact list chip, but also an iTransformer technology installer. With this chip, users can transform any kind of mobile phones into the shapes they want, which could satisfy their desire in always be fond of new looks.

2. Development

At the end of 2015, US technological engineers finally conquered the conundrum that combines the solar energy and NT (Nanotechnology) into one small energy container. This means many battery using technologies can store much more huge amount of energy than user, which technologically speaking, could lowered the payment on users’ electric bill and also longer the batteries’ life spans.

Time firstly published this news on the Christmas special edition on December 24th, 2015. It wrote that the remarkable success was a huge step for human being on the way of scientific and technological development; it was a milestone for later technological advancement.

In later several years after this technology had been widely used, almost all battery using technologies have turned to add in this technology especially in mobile phone industry. The appearances of mobile phones have been changed, more creative ideas for mobile phone producers and more options for final users to choose. Motorola produced a super thin mobile phone Moto649 with a transparent screen, which is also the battery absorbing part, on the top of the phone. When the phone is not using, the screen part is penetrable and easy for carrying. Users can simply lock their phones on their key chains. This Moto649 starts a brand new era for mobile phones in considering more in kinesiology to be more suitable for human being in using technologies.

A great news was bombed after a long peace and the bottleneck in mobile phone industry in April, 2022. Consumers can now own self humanoid robots! The outlook of the robots had almost no difference with real human beings. It can smile with the corners of the mouth uptrend; its skin is also as elastic as real skin. This humanoid robot wholly changed the way people thinking about a machine.

No longer after that, Nokia888 appeared on the market, it was the first transformable mobile phone in the world and also the milestone in mobile phone technology. It follows the idea of kinesiology, combine the skin making of the humanoid robot, the Nokia888 could transformed into several forms to satisfied the users’ needs. It could be fold as a clip or wear as a bracelet. Users no longer have to worry about to leave a pocket for cell phones or the stolen of cell phones. Besides the merit of human touch and easy for carrying, it also works as a smart phone. It carried on the idea of a pocket computer, and made it simpler to operate.

3. Rationale

Using solar power to produce electricity is not the same as using solar to produce heat. Solar thermal principles are applied to produce hot fluids or air. Photovoltaic principles are used to produce electricity. A solar panel (PV panel) is made of the natural element, silicon, which becomes charged electrically when subjected to sun light. Energy conservation plays a crucial role for sensor networks. We propose to utilize solar power in wireless sensor networks, establishing a topology where, changing over time, some nodes can receive and transmit packets without consuming the limited battery resources. (Voigt,T. 2003)

Scientists are not only working on solar power, but also nanotechnology. It is said that advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology promise to have major implications in the upcoming decades. Knowledge in this field is growing worldwide, leading to fundamental scientific advances. And this will lead to dramatic changes in the ways that materials, devices, and systems are understood and created.

According to the development of these two perspective technologies, the possibility of making a solar-nanotechnology based battery has been hugely enhanced.

A robot called ‘Robovie’ has been developed. It has unique mechanisms designed for communication with humans. Robovie can generate human-like behaviors by using human-like actuators and vision and audio sensors. (Ishiguro, 2001) This research gives us the confidence that a real-human-look robot will not be only a dream. With the addition of nanotechnology, the iTransformer technology becomes a positive solution for future mobile phone.
