Concept Phone: Fujitsu Brick

Fujitsu Brick

The "Brick” was the not-so-fond term given to phones such as Motorola’s DynaTAC 8000X back in the 1980s. If a phone were to earn a similar moniker today, it almost certainly would mean it was destined for the scrap heap.

Not this brick, though. Designed by Shaocheng Huang & Yuyin Huang, this transparent PC doesn’t carry any of the bulk of its namesake. Instead, the clear glass machine can be used to magnify text and objects, translate foreign documents, capture film and stills, and even act as a projector.

It can also connect to any TV screen or monitor and be used as a much bigger version of the screen on the Brick. Taking a leaf out of Nintendo’s forthcoming Wii U console, the Brick is capable of “throwing” images and data to other devices.

  I'm not entirely sure if Fujitsu is genuinely exploring this idea with the Huangs, but what I do know is we’ve just taken a step closer to Steve Jobs’ concept of a post-PC world.

The PC uses its transparent screen as a lens to take stills and video.

The post-PC device is designed to be carried in the pocket and not on your back.

The device can “throw” images to and from a device.

It can be used to translate reading material.

The Brick can connect with any TV and use it as a monitor.

It can magnify things, too.

Pretty Dope, I Wanna Get One !
