Check out this stunning holographic iPhone concept

By , May 3, 2012

Us folks at iDownloadBlog love conceptual gadget artwork as much as you do, especially gorgeous, believable renditions like a Liquidmetal-based iPhone 5. But every once in a while an out-of-this-world artwork surfaces that gives us all a pause. Take this exceptional depiction of a candy colored 3D town coming to life from the screen of an iPhone.

It’s amazing and trust me when I say it shouldn’t be missed. This is what a holographic iPhone might be like, though that’s not to say it’s going to happen anytime soon. But hey, with a little help from creative artists we can easily imagine what the future might hold some day…

The clip below is the work of one Mike Ko (via Dvice), a Los Angeles-based 3D artist. He calls it the iPhone Diorama and a brief glance is enough to appreciate his elaborate attention to detail in designing and bringing the scene to life.

Part of his graduation project from Otis College of Art & Design, the clip was created using Maya, After Effects and Pftrack.

It took around three months to complete (footage was shot with a Canon T2i).

I wish Ko lands a gig with Pixar or something.

His 3D skills are exceptional and I think he’s way too creative too waste talent designing boring 3D office buildings.

Did this concept animation make your day?

      I imagine a good demo would be a racing game with maybe even a controller, or a strategy game where you could look around for good spots to shoot with your artillery with.
      Or maybe Siri getting a body and some dance moves haha…

      Seriously, I can easily think of tons more actual interesting applications.

    i’Boss11, you shouldn’t think about how fake it is, you should be thinking how this will be possible in the coming years. You have to look at the idea in-depth and don’t look at the obvious
