Concept Video Shows How A Wearable iPhone Could Look

If Google is to be believed, wearable devices are the future of mobile technology. Their Project Glass has caused quite a stir in recent months. While Apple doesn’t have anything like that themselves at present (apart from the iPod Nano), there’s a decent chance they’re working on it. Whether it’s their own version of Project Glass, or a wrist-mounted iPhone, Apple probably has something wearable in the works.

While a wrist-mounted iPhone may seem unlikely (and probably is), concept artist Federico Ciccarese has published some concept images that show what it might look like if it were real. It looks pretty cool, for all that it also looks uncomfortable and bears a slightly disturbing resemblance to a head crab.

iPhone, or Head Crab?

But resemblance to evil zombie-making alien parasites aside, this is a pretty neat concept. You can check out the full set of images at Ciccarese’s website. Ciccarese has also put together a video showing the wearable iPhone from multiple angles. It’s embedded below for your viewing pleasure:

    Seems to me that if a phone was made shorter and wider and as thin as the one in the picture above, with a couple of nice bands like watches have, it wouldn’t be uncomfortable to wear on the lower arm right above the wrist. I’d wear one. I’d probably pull up my own business website,Web Design Just For You all the time, just to look at it for fun and the novelty of it!

      That is the worst backlink for a site that I’ve ever seen.

    Oh dear, how unbelievably stupid and ugly, and it was only last month that whatever his name is responsible for apple design was getting an award from UK royalty. If I was him I would either issue a statement denying all knowledge of this grotesque concept or quit while ahead.

    I wonder whether this designer has forgotten that this is supposed to be, you know, a phone.

    Isn’t it always a question of balance?
    Just like when a knowledge is understandable for you, then it’s not new. So if a design feels totally comfortable, so it has not disturbed us enough to think out of the box.
    Nice or not is a matter of taste. Or is it more a matter of how much we are willing to be challenged and to explore uncharted terrotories?
