Homegrown: From the people who brought you Remade

May 11, 2008 in Nokia Randomness

The Nokia group that brought the Remade concept to the masses is back with a couple of new ideas.

Homegrown: Nokia's New Concept Devices

Homegrown: Nokia’s New Concept Devices

So the new roundup of concept devices (ie, devices that will probably never see the light of day – if the Nokia Aeon is any indication) includes the Zero Waste Charger, People First, and “Wears in, not out” concepts. A quick overview:

Zero Waste Charger

Zero Waste Charger

The zero waste charger is supposed to be the wave of the future, capable of preventing that “phantom power” phenomenon where things like cell phone chargers use up tiny amounts of energy even when they’re not charging anything.

People First

People First Concept

Next up is the People First concept, which is a new type of user interface based on lists of people. Check out the concept device – it’s a funky looking candy bar with a funkier looking scroll key.

Wears In, Not Out

Wears In, Not Out

And finally it’s “Wears In, Not Out,” yet another Nokia concept device that looks like it might be the first phone to operate on Mars. Actually, it’s really supposed to demonstrate how you could update your handset digitally rather than physically (and by that, I guess they mean getting a whole new phone entirely).
