The future? One designer's vision to put the iPhone on your wrist

Literally wearing your phone…

WE’RE EXPECTING THAT Apple will unveil the next generation of its ubiquitous iPhone later this year but check out this radical new concept.

What if the iPhone was shaped to fit your wrist?

Though it’s highly unlikely to happen this year, the concept designer Federico Ciccarese has come up with this spider-like device that would truly be revolutionary if it ever was released.

“I think I am a crazy designer. I tried to imagine what is studied in large companies, and this is the result,” he told TheJournal.ie saying that he believes the next generation of smartphone devices will be wearable.

The design is nothing more than a concept at the minute but it is one of many on Federico’s website and he hopes that somebody might offer him a job so that he can bring his ideas to life.

He added: “It is necessary to find a great solution to merge body and machine and I’ve worked on this. I’m trying to get in some great company to be able to realise the devices I have in mind.”
