Every once in a while, someone comes up with a concept device that could change the tech world as we know it. Case in point, the Motorola Digital Butler, a personal assistant device that could easily change the definition of clamshell phone. Not because it can open up like a traditional clamshell phone, but it looks like one half of a clamshell.
If I would have to compare the Digital Butler to any phone on the market, I would have to say the iPhone. The screen is a full touchscreen, the only difference is that is circular, and not rectangular. As you can see, you can put different skins on it, sort of like an iPhone.
The mobile device is 4G network compatible with a GPS, and also includes accelerometer tech and squeeze buttons on the perimeter. I believe that the plan is also to put in a multimedia LED projector, like the kind that I have been seeing peddled by many a tech company lately.
You know what it reminds me of? The mini-holographic projector used by Qui-Gon in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. If you watch the CG animated Star Wars: Clone Wars show, those mini holographic projectors are used as communicators. The Digital Butler could be this tech come to life.
Well, we’ll see. I have to say that about all concept tech, and I like this one.
