Mozilla’s Seabird concept phone is quite the concept indeed

Sometimes, a concept device really makes you sit back and think to yourself, “is this possible?” Surely I’m not the only one that is thinking the same thing about the Seabird concept device from Mozilla Labs, which would truly push the boundaries of a mobile device if a physical unit ever sees the light of day.

The most interesting thing about this concept, and ultimately the least plausible, is the dual Pico projectors, which can simulate a physical QWERTY keyboard that can be interacted with by the user, as well as project the phone’s display in a much larger format.

Kind of like a swiss army knife, this concept device also houses a wireless pointer, as well as a pop-out Bluetooth headset. While both of these sound cool, in reality they just don’t seem very practical.

Describing this concept is one thing, but seeing a video demonstration is another. Continue after the break for a 3D render of the concept in action, which also just so happens to be running a stock, vanilla Android UI. You can also learn more about the concept by visiting the page over at Mozilla Labs.

    Ignorance surely is bliss. Some of us still think the world is flat and that it’s impossible to break the sound barrier.
