My hope is that my phone becomes my personal computer, my work computer, and my car stereo What? My phone? Yes!!! My phone and I think it may be possible to hack together. Driving in this morning I was thinking about NFC Stickers, Wireless Power, Airplay, Bluetooth, and how powerful phones are now-a-days. What would I use for a desktop computer? I would use my phone. I come home with my phone in my pocket. I set it down on a wireless power pad that has an NFC sticker on it. It will then begin to recharge, and the NFC sticker will trigger the phone to turn-on Airplay/Bluetooth that will connect to an external display, speakers, keyboard and mouse are now connected. The phone would also trigger a different the desktop to act similar to OS X and not iOS. How would this work when I drive? It would work almost the exact same way. I would set the phone in a compartment or holder that is enabled with wireless power and a NFC sticker. The only difference would be the external display is a small 7-10″ touchscreen that is mounted to the dash. The phones Airplay would mirror to the screen/speakers and the phone is triggered to switch to a vehicle version of iOS that makes the maps, phone, and music apps the most prominent apps. That’s it. You can see where this is going, and I think it’s a very realistic future. Android seem to be closer to accomplish what I hope happens to my phone, but with my experience of Android it’s going to be wonky and work only some of the time. Let’s just say we were not impressed at all with our HTC Sensation. Is this even possible? Yeah, lets just look at the difference between my laptop and the most current iPhone.
MacBook Air – 1.8 GHz i5, 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3 vs Iphone 5 – Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9, 1 GB RAM
So so so close. Oh but wait, that sweet looking aluminum case on your iPhone 5 made it impossible for Apple to utilize the NFC technology and it was dropped…boo. What do you think? Music to let it sink in….
