Design dreams for iPhone, iWatch, and... iSiri? (pictures)
Designer Federico Ciccarese has crafted some beautiful concepts for the next generation of iDevices. Jony Ive, please take notes.
Designer Federico Ciccarese and his firm Ciccarese Design have a wonderful habit of visualizing what Apple might have up its sleeve for its latest product releases. Ahead of the anticipated September 10 unveiling of a new iPhone, and perhaps some other iDevices, Ciccarese has shared some of his newest visions with us.
Here he envisions a new iPhone complete with the rumored fingerprint scanner and a curved screen.
The curved iPhone from Italy's Ciccarese Design features a screen that bows outward just slightly, like a somewhat inverted Moto X. Ciccarese also recently created a vision of what the expected colored iPhone might look like.
Among the more intriguing of the Apple concepts worked up by Federico Ciccarese and his team of Italian designers and engineers is this rendering of a possible iWatch. It envisions a particularly meaty bracelet-style watch with a curved display running full-fledged iOS7. Eat your heart out, Dick Tracy.
This rendering from 2012 is something Ciccarese has dubbed "iSiri." The small device connects to an iPhone via Bluetooth and functions as an extension of the capabilities that Siri offers, taking commands and responding. It basically is the Dick Tracy watch of yore.
While this Ciccarese concept for an iPhone 5 dates all the way back to before the release of the actual iPhone 5, it's too insane not to share here. Part iPhone, part iWatch, and part brass knuckles, I almost want to see someone actually build this more than I want to see a Hyperloop realized.
