BARCELONA, Spain -- What does the future look like to Kyocera? From foldable tablets to transparent smartphones, we take a look at some of the wild concept ideas the company has for the next generation.
Above is a safety device geared towards children. With this GPS bracelet, kids can sound off an emergency alarm, and parents can monitor their children's vitals and location.
This health monitor is designed to be worn over the ear and would track a user's vitals.
The wearable would also serve as a not-so-futuristic Bluetooth device.
This tablet would still remain completely touchscreen, but would be able to fold together due to flexible glass.
Another look at the foldable tablet, which would also have a screen on the outside of the fold to display information.
No, this isn't a big fat smartwatch. This would be an ultra-thin smartphone that could bend in whatever shape -- in this case, a bangle to be worn over the wrist.
Another look at the super slim, bendable smartphone.
These rugged, waterproof smartphones could be strapped on sport equipment like bikes and kayaks and users can still make calls and check their e-mails through the devices' circular touchscreens.
Kyocera mocks up what one of its transparent smartphones would look like.
The transparent handset would also have a soft pulsating notification light that surrounds the entire rim of the phone.
