The designs are on public exhibition until June 16th. The ideas range from handsets made from recycled material, phones that double as photo frames, and even a phone that can be setup to perform surveillance (above).
Some of these ideas are very innovative but I doubt we'll be seeing them anytime soon. These designs are projections of possible fifth-generation products which are speculated to be released in 2015, nearly a decade wait time. Now I know that manufacturers like to get our attention early but I don't think I can wait that long to get my hands on one of these.
I think that many manufacturers of electronics are catching on to what the automotive industry has known for years. While we may never see these prototypes released, there are definitely features that will leak their way into modern day phones as the technology to accomplish it emerges.
