Alo Smartphone
/ 2 February 2017

One of the defining points of a smartphone is its large LED backlit touchscreen which give users the ability to control whatever feature or app they desire but French designers Philipe Starck and Jerome Olivet have just unveiled the Alo smartphone. A radical new concept for the smartphone of the future which will be released in collaboration with electronics brand Thomson.

Instead of a touchscreen feature, the Alo smartphone relies on a completely voice activated function base that shuns the usual LED-backlit touchscreen, and instead projects 3-D holographic images of messages, movies, or anything else the user might want to view.

Instead of the usual aluminium casing, this crescent shaped device will be made out of a sort of self-healing material which will sit perfectly in the palm of your hand for a guaranteed comfortable fit. Not only that, the Alo smartphone also provides haptic feedback (heat and vibration) to its users.

Olivet and Starck plan to develop Alo into a prototype for Thomson later this year. Stay tuned for more information.
