… Then you are likely to hipster. Actually no, because it still is not commercially available. Runcible original device from the US startup Monohm will be presented at the MWC 2015 in Barcelona, but the guys have nothing to hide now. Their device is unusual and to win your audience, it’s time to start an information assault. So round and in a wooden case. Even on a chain. This is exactly smartphone?
The device is in the form of pancake flat front and back cover of volume, which, in theory, be nice and comfortable in the hand due to the shape and smooth polished wood. Located in the center of the rear camera lens. But not so much the structure of the device is important as the pose – is a gadget for those who are tired of smartphones, from the constant state of on-line and from the information in unlimited quantities. Hence the original design.
After all, once the only gadget that needed someone had hours. Pocket. On a chain. (Once upon a time in general no need Soup were not, but it’s not about those days) It looked very impressive, so it’s time to return something similar in usage of these gentlemen. And hipsters. In the smartphone has two connectors to which you can attach the holder for the chain, strap or even flip cover. And so, as the diagonal too great, and the only mount, on the one hand, wrist device do not work. And would be cool – anti-alias smartphone and smart watch. Although the presence of the functions of the tracker he still has not been denied.
With such a small display on the Internet for a long time, you will not be late. Of course, you can scroll through the Twitter feed will be, but how long will you last? But here with navigation interesting things. Runcible round, like a compass…! Therefore indicate the direction of the arrow is. When it starts flashing – you will need to change direction. In short – a smart twist! And it is the same round as the clock (I now captain), so it can be put on the table, you will instead alarm because classic watches – this lock screen. Or as a station that shows the weather forecast or currencies. Here could be a joke, that the battery with such leaps currency will be discharged too quickly, but I will not.
The life of this device promises to 4 days. Well, it is not particularly. With Runcible, of course, you can call, write messages, surf the ‘Net, pictures. But a small diagonal, either you music or a movie, tired to strain your eyes to consider the letter, and the stylus is not provided. Yes, and Firefox OS … What games which applications? There will be small. So with its task (see two paragraphs above) device handle. A man comes out of the virtual world, takes off from YouTube and Instagram and go watch the real world and make a real compliment. It is unlikely that the device will be massive, and certainly not the fact that it will be convenient, but the original – that’s for sure.
Runcible positioned as anti-smartphone, the device is exclusive. Will sell it through a Japanese telecom operator KDDI. Price will obviously not as exorbitant as the current champions, still gadget and is not intended to quadrotor IT-world. And that might interest, under cover of the device, namely the replacement parts. Like Project Ara, who wait, it seems a hundred years, but that’s already on the show next week. Details vary depending on the need. And although it is not known about the processor or the camera module, it is not clear why it is necessary to smartphones, which should not be ahead of the rest in terms of technical capabilities. I think they can be printed on a 3D printer, as well as additional cover to upgrade the appearance. Although, as you can see in the pictures, the designers of the device strongly tried, so the body will be a variety of colors and textures. What kind of tree will be used is unknown, but any wood over the years, becoming more beautiful and noble. Although, at some point, I thought it was just cut roundels from the front door around the eye …
And how you like the idea?
