Smartphone gauntlet is oddly compelling concept tech
Hello tech fans, we're here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, taking a look at something very interesting.
It's a smartphone gauntlet.
So this thing has been built by a company that's here called Flex Enable.
Now this is just a prototype.
It's not an actual product you're gonna be able to buy, it's just a sort of concept idea that the company has mocked up.
The company makes flexible screens, and they just wanna show off what Curved displays have the potential to do.
Although it's not a real product, they've done a pretty good with this one.
I like that down the side here you can press all these different buttons, check out all these different modes.
I think this sort of product idea has a little bit of potential actually.
It's kind of somewhere between a smart phone and a smart watch.
If you've played with a smart watch and found the screen just a little bit too small and fiddly, then maybe something massive like this.
[LAUGH] Could be a little bit more usable.
And I have to say it's got a sort of retro sci-fi appeal as well.
So the [UNKNOWN] display itself is actually made of plastic.
There's no glass in here.
And what else is interesting is that there's no silicon either.
The silicon has been replacced by other materials with organic properties.
So it's just a bit of fun for now.
