I came across two excellent presentations delivered by Stephanie Rieger in Dallas and London recently. These presentations provide very good overview of the current development and future trend of mobile devices.
Beyond the mobile web
It’s about people, not devices…
It is not surprising that 2010 was the year mobile connected the world. Armed with stunning statistics, facts, and visual cues, Mobile Future produced this informative video. The video takes a tour of key consumer and technology mobile trends across an eventful year. Some highlights of the video include:
Massive increase in apps downloaded:
- 5 billion apps downloaded – up from 300 million in 2009
Whopping expansion of location-based services
- 5 million Foursquare users – up from 200,000 users in 2009
Surge in mobile social media platforms
- 347 percent growth in Twitter mobile usage
- 200 million mobile Facebook Users
- 100 million YouTube videos played on mobile devices everyday
It is anticipated that mobile data traffic and apps will continue this phenomenal growth in 2011. I think the mobile future is full of excitement and opportunity.
An interesting concept video produced by Nokia. According to Nokia, the concept shown in the video allows users to experience immersion and effortless navigation in new ways. New types of interactions involve near-to-eye displays, gaze direction tracking, 3D audio, 3D video, gesture and touch. Through these new types of social linkages people will be connected in innovative ways between the physical and digital worlds. Cool idea. However, when will such technology become available since the video was produced one and half years ago?
Whether we are ready or not, the technology is changing our life even more so in the next few years. Watch “A Day Made of Glass” and take a look at Corning’s vision for the future with specialty glass at the heart of it. Amazing, isn’t? I can’t wait for this happening. The technology like this will definitely change the way we live, work, play, and learn in the future.
As I wrote in my last post, books will be different in the future with augmented reality technology. However, IDEO has different vision for the future of the book. I think IDEO has a great idea with nice design and innovation. For now, please take a look at the future of the book through three concepts – Nelson, Coupland, and Alice. What do you think? Does IDEO’s vision provoke and inspire your thoughts about the future of reading?
