If you can’t get enough of futuristic mockups like a¬†holographic iPhone, this one’s guaranteed to pique your interest.

It’s viral now as clearly a lot of work has gone into rendering such a surprisingly realistic-looking depiction of a next-gen iPhone.

The basic premise definitely salivated our mouth and made us wish someone out there paid notice and engineered a device like this. Not like it’s happening anytime soon, mind you, but perhaps Samsung’s collective brain trust ¬†is crazy enough to take a shot at it?

After all, the South Korean conglomerate is working on phones and tablets featuring flexible displays so…

Taking cues from Aatma Studios’s concept of an iPhone with a holographic keyboard, Tulsa, Oklahoma-based designer Dakota Adney¬†really hit the ball out of the park creating this intriguing video mockup depicting a next-generation iPhone with a display that can become transparent in certain situations.

It’s also got a¬†full-size, holographic keyboard projected onto flat surfaces by way of pico projection¬†that you can type on and interact with.

Talk about virtuality!


From YouTube description:

Clearly amazing. The quad-core A5 chip delivers even more power. The laser projection keyboard liberates your thumbs. The new iClear Retina display presents sharp graphics and stunning images.

iOS 6 will take your iPhone experience in an entirely new direction. And if there’s anything else you need, just ask Siri.

Apple already patented pico projection systems¬†that can read and react to the silhouettes of gestures in front of the projections, as well as¬†Minority Report-style 3D gestures, but it’s anyone guess whether these features will ever be incorporated into future devices.

I don’t know about you, but this video concept just blows me out of the water.
