The smart phone represents the current pinnacle of mobile phone development, which couples additional functionalities of a PDA along with phone capabilities. In comparison between phone and handheld computer, the phone has the dominant genes—smart phones generally look more like phones than PDAs.
Smart phones are much more than just communication devices, with additional computing built in it. Compare this to PCs which was developed from larger computers that were none other than calculating machines, PCs then moved to desktop systems used for content creation and information storage. It was only with the introduction of internet and browsers that they became strong communication tools.
For smart phones to become successful pervasive system components, they must support and enhance various user activities and offer useful, effective functionality. Given their origins, smart phones must support interaction and communication between people in a very advanced manner. Along with regular functionalities Smart phones should still perform computations, store information, and support other typically computing-related tasks.
This perception has guided lot of research in the mobile industry. One such initiative is clearly seen in Snapback, an Italian startup based in Rome, focused on developing new, intuitive and revolutionary ways to interact with smart devices.
A natural and powerful user experience by reinterpreting the available technology as a user-centred environment.
New ways of communicating with our devices by enforcing simple hand, voice, and air gestures and minimising touch and sight interactions.
The technology empowers consumer electronics and turning smart devices into unbelievably functional tools with an extensive usage of sensors, already available on contemporary devices, hence making them run with no additional hardware.
Snapback carries the UX to an upper level as it adopts a user-cantered design thus providing the best possible interaction each time-every time.
They are also ramping up their technical team, hence interested readers can contact them directly.
Team eXi wishes them success in their journey.
