World and the Future Technology/Gadgets
Apple Black Hole
The Apple Black Hole concept will possibly be the iPhone of the year 2020. This new phone from Apple lab is designed using 3D Holography Technology. It has an elusive holographic screen. Developers are looking for new ways to provide rich interactive display in 3D. Apple has come out with a new 3-dimensional display with holographic images which do not require glasses.
It all works by the central ball levitating when you open your hand and all functions will be controlled in mid-air, with the aid of holographic technology.
The Apple Black Hole comprises 4 components:
Solar Panel Phone Screens
If your Smartphone does not last the day, chances are the screen is largely to blame. The display is by far the most power-hungry component in your mobile device, but on your next phone it may give back some of the power it takes
the tech is thin enough to be incorporated into existing phones. The solar layer is less than 0.5 millimeters thick, according to a press release, and up to 90 percent transparent, so it does not visibly interfere with the quality of an image. The solar layer lives below the touch layer in the phone screen, and houses transparent crystals that soak up light and a chip that converts the energy and feeds it into the phone battery.
The screen isn’t meant to be the phone’s primary power source. But for those who spend a lot of time outside, it could extend battery life substantially, or provide enough juice to make a short call in an emergency situation when there’s no charger available.
It is made with white gold for the structure and black magnetic ceramic for the slats and the balls. This watch is inspired by ball, game and automotive shapes. I would like to work with repetition and progression as we can see in architecture or furniture design. The mechanism to watch the time is mainly magnetic.
Indeed, hours are shown by the blue disc in brushed aluminum anodized.
Minutes are represented by the black ceramic slats. Each slat represents 2 minutes. It is a horizontal progression. The blue ball is moving on the slats to show what time it is.
Seconds are shown by the other blue ball that is turning around the mechanism. It makes a turn in one minute.
Smart watches are the hottest thing right now, and pretty much every Smartphone developer is looking into producing their own. It is said to be the next step in mobile technology. There are still people who want more power from their mobile devices, and so they put together things that can even rival a desktop computer. Here is an idea that is currently being developed and gathering movement. But it is just a concept prototype of something that could come to rival the sometimes less powerful smart watches that are about to take over the world.
This wrist PC sports a fully functional 3.5 inch touch screen display and a keypad incorporated into the wristband itself. The wrist PC also has a wireless earpiece that can be easily detached in order to make calls, listen to music or enjoy a movie when you’re on your way home. It’s a really interesting concept, and I think with a little bit of maturing, it could become a potent competitor to the smart watches that are now being rolled out one by one.
Unfortunately this thing is not yet completely realized, and with some of the smart watches now boosting their feature base and processor speed exponentially, taking this wrist PC into the next generation to be lined up with tomorrow’s smart watches will be a pretty impressive feat.
Russian company Orbital Technologies reckons it'll be sending tourists into space as early as next year. Guests would zoom up to the Commercial Space Station on a rocket, and then spend their time in one of the station's four cabins enjoying zero gravity and watching earth through the ship's giant portholes.
You'll get there via a Russian Soyuz rocket, taking you about a day to reach the Commercial Space Station 217 miles above the earth. Once you catch up to the orbiting abode, you'll settle in with your comrades — up to six other space tourists (or researchers) — for an unparalleled adventure, residing in four cabins aboard the space station.
While you're traveling at 17,500 miles per hour in low earth orbit, you'll be pampered with all the space amenities you can imagine, such as plenty of gourmet foods, a specially designed sealed shower, your choice of a vertical or horizontal bed (does it really matter in the microgravity of space?), and you might even get to sip some Tang spiked with your favorite vodka (okay, we made that last one up — unfortunately, alcohol will not be available).

Samsung has done something very similar. At CES 2016, the Korean electronics maker showed off a concept of a modular TV. At the Samsung booth, I watched as a roughly 50-inch screen split apart and separated into four, and then eight different displays.
Motors in the wall moved each of the eight square-shaped screen modules inward and outward, putting passive “blank” squares in between the screens when separated. Essentially, each of these pieces of the screens can be used independently, as well as move together and form screens in different aspect ratios. The really cool thing is that when they form together, it’s totally seamless—meaning you can’t see the lines between the individual pieces.
Faraday Future FFZero1 Concept
New high-performance concept car the FFZero1, which looks as close to the Bat mobile as we’ve seen in an actual car. It’s fully electric; claims a 0-60 speed in less than three seconds, and can travel over 200mph. It's a 1,000-horsepower, all-wheel drive hyper car with room for one hypothetical driver who sits nestled in the center of a carbon fiber cocoon, surrounded by a cockpit that looks straight out of some utopian vision for the future. The dashboard uses what designer Kim calls the company's "propeller IP," a shape that extends over the drivers' shoulder and twists around to become an instrument cluster.
But that isn't the focal point of the interior. Nestled in the center of the steering wheel is neither airbag nor big corporate logo, but instead your phone. Yes, you slot your Smartphone into the steering wheel -- but only after you use the car's app to configure settings, things like traction control and throttle response to personalize the experience.
The Parrot Disco has two wings that let take off more like a kite than a traditional drone. With just a toss in the air, the Disco can pick up enough momentum to stay afloat. This thing can also fly at speeds up to 50mph, stay up for as long as 45 minutes, comes with a 1080p camera at the nose, and have a number of assisted flying modes.
The Disco weighs 700 grams, or roughly 1.5 pounds. It has a top speed of 80 kilometers per hour, about 50 miles per hour, which is much faster than most of the consumer drones on the market. The fixed-wing design gives better battery life than a quad copter. You can operate it with Parrot's Sky Controller or a standard RC controller, or you can plot out a flight plan with the app and let the Disco do all the navigation.
