iPhone PRO design concept





iphone5_concept

Check out this iPhone 'Pro' concept from designer Jinyoung Choi that features a 3D camera, interchangeable lenses, 4.5-inch display, and more.

Sink your teeth into this gorgeous iPhone PRO Concept! It is designed for users who tend to work with the camera more than any other app! The recent iOS update validates the idea. iPhone Pro features a 4.5 inch wide LCD screen with 2 side buttons. The 1.2megapixel 3D camera notches up the funk by hooking well with a DSLR lens. Projector capabilities, portable speaker and removable hard disk (at the rear), make the phone all the more dishy!

The special ‘mount’ connects the iPhone PRO and DSLR lenses seamlessly.

Specs:

  • 1.2megapixel 3D camera
  • 128x73x9.6(mm)
  • 4.5inch(1280×800)

Jony Ive Discusses Apple's Creative Design Processes



Jonathan-Ive

Apple design chief Jony Ive in an interview to the London Evening Standard revealed how the design process works at Apple. Ive told that prototyping is deeply integrated into the design process at Apple, and discussed Apple’s approach to creating entirely new categories of products rather than simply improving on existing ones.

Q: What makes design different at Apple?

A: We struggle with the right words to describe the design process at  Apple, but it is very much about designing and prototyping and making. When you separate those, I think the final result suffers. If something is going to be better, it is new, and if it’s new you are confronting problems and challenges you don’t have references for. To solve and address those requires a remarkable focus. There’s a sense of being inquisitive and optimistic, and you don’t see those in combination very often.

Apple Using OpenStreetMap Data in iPhoto for iOS



apple_campus_iphoto_ios

Following the launch of Apple’s iPhoto for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch application, several reports noted that the mapping integration into the software was not Google-based. With Apple working on an in-house iOS maps product for the last couple of years, Daring Fireball's John Gruber later clarified that maps for Photo Journals and slideshows were coming directly from Apple.

The OpenStreetMap Foundation has now issued a blog post revealing that Apple is using at least some of its mapping data for these features, although it does note that Apple is using outdated mapping data and is not crediting appropriately for its usage.

The new iPhoto for iOS, however, uses Apple’s own map tiles – made from OpenStreetMap data (outside the US). [...]

Apple Researching Motion-Sensing Virtual 3D User Interface for iOS Devices



apple_3d_interface_iphone

Patently Apple has discovered a newly-published patent application from Apple. The application describes the use of motion sensors to create a virtual three-dimensional interface for iOS devices. Such interface could be a co-called virtual room that could be navigated by changing the orientation of the device. Noteworthy, similar concepts are found in some augmented reality apps.

The invention covers a 3D display environment for mobile device that uses orientation data from one or more onboard sensors to automatically determine and display a perspective projection of the 3D display environment based on the orientation data without the user physically interacting with (e.g., touching) the display.

Unverified photo may show pre-production iPad 3 Retina Display



iPad3Display

A Korean forum (via MacRumors) published on Friday an unverified photo of the much rumored iPad 3's high-resolution display, and reveals a subtle change from the iPad 2 that could suggest a higher resolution panel is being sourced for the upcoming tablet. An image shows a component that has three ribbon cable connectors instead of the two found on current iterations of the device.

Little to no information accompanied the photo. It is only believed that the image is a comparison shot of a current iPad 2 panel sitting above an alleged iPad 3 display.

As you can see there are 3 brown ribbon cables leading from the screen itself to the circuit board. The small brown cable to the far left is the power cable, while the other two wide cables are for display data. This configuration matches with the top display in the leaked photo (though the power cable is missing).

The claimed iPad 3 photo shows 3 wide ribbon cables that might be used for data. The iPad 3 is expected to carry a high resolution screen of 2048x1536 which is four times the number of pixels of the current iPad 2, so the need for additional data bandwidth would be understandable.
