The Nokia Eco Sensor Phone Concept
A new concept phone was announced by the cellphone giant Nokia. Its a mobile phone that keeps track of your health and environment. You can also share the environmental data your sensing device collects and view other users’ shared data, thereby increasing your global environmental awareness. It’s like an Eco social networking phone :D.
The concept of the phone consists of two parts. A wearable sensor unit which can sense and analyze your environment, health, and local weather conditions, and a dedicated mobile phone. The carrying strap used in the Nokia Eco Sensor Concept were made from solar cells which will provide power to the sensor unit.
The design is a winner on my book, it’s simple and minimal yet gives you that cool factor. Nokia said that both the phone and the sensor unit will be as compact as possible to minimize material use, and those materials used in the design will be renewable and/or reclaimed. Technologies used inside the phone and sensor unit will also help save energy.
