Aatma Studio Unveils Spectacular ‘Concept iPhone 5’ Video

iPhone5KeyoardAatma Studio, the animation and visual effects firm who showed us a glimpse of the CG iPhone 5 last week, today unveiled their computer generated ‘Concept iPhone 5’. The exclusive video showcases a slender iPhone and some of its unique features – A laser keyboard that could be swiped out and a holographic display that could be flicked onto a wall.

“It’s truly an exciting day for us’, said Pramod Shantharam, CEO Aatma Studio “We at Aatma are massive fans of the iPhone and are eagerly awaiting the release of iPhone 5. Meanwhile, going by the buzz the iPhone 5 is generating, we felt it’s a good time to launch a concept such as this, and showcase our vision of key features of an iPhone 5 or subsequent models could have in the future”

The ‘Concept iPhone 5’ video kicks off with a super thin device displayed from multiple angles.

“The entire phone you see in the video is computer generated. We modeled, animated and rendered the CG phone where the footage was first motion tracked and the CG phone was composited over it”, adds Pramod.

The ‘Concept iPhone 5’ video then showcases a keyboard that is swiped out of the phone and perches on the desk, enlarged and ready to be typed. This keyboard is designed for high speed typing where a novel could be written on it, going by its ease of use. The keyboard is lit with a bright white display and allows the user to rotate, scale/pinch zoom and adjust brightness, according to their preference.

“In our ‘Concept iPhone 5’, all features are invoked by gestures – thus replacing buttons”, says Pramod.

Explaining the process behind the making of this feature, Pramod goes on to say “We shot the hands on a green screen and then composited motion graphics of a keyboard on the video; thus making it look like the hand is typing and interacting with the laser keyboard.”

The other feature of the ‘Concept iPhone 5’ is the Holographic display/projection. This provides a larger real-estate for the user to watch videos or movies. The floating screen can be flicked on to a wall to make the display even larger where an entire family could enjoy watching a movie.

“Going camping or outdoors at night, how cool would it be to just take your iphone and watch a movie?” said Chris Bernal, Technical Director at Aatma Studio. He goes onto say “The display is based on gestures as well. Once the gesture is made, the screen projects its contents”

“We hope that viewers enjoy watching the features of the Concept iPhone 5 as much as we have loved making it” adds Chris.

“This video represents Aatma’s vision of any future smartphone really, and it would be cool to see such features in a smartphone someday” says Pramod.

Aatma Studio would be rolling out more features of a CG concept smartphone in the coming months.

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
