Cool iPad 3 concept video (unfortunately it’s only a concept)

Before the iPhone 4S was known as the iPhone 4S, Aatma Studio created a cool concept of the “iPhone 5″. This came in being thinner, had the rumoured “edge-to-edge” display and also packed a laser keyboard. Just in time for the March 7th Apple “iPad 3″ announcement Aatma is back with a concept of what they’d like the next-gen tablet to look like: 3D game play, edge-to-edge display, ability to connect other iPads together and share info via NFC.

Mashable has an interview with Pramod Modi Shantharam, CEO and animation director at Aatma, who stated that “Although the tablet form factor is great, we felt the need for a larger visual real estate. We eliminated the black border of current iPad and thought it would be a great visual experience for users who bring their iPads together utilizing their internal magnets.”

Impressive and would actually change everything if this is what Apple would launch. Unfortunately, it won’t. However, the rumoured specs have it coming with a better display, more powerful processor, better camera, LTE – and even a bit thicker. Check out the concept below.

    indeed, it is too bad it is only a concept.

      This is not real, its just a concept, however, the playbook does this exact functionality after 2.0 release, the press is just biased though so they don’t report it.

    That’s probably the most bad a*s concept I’ve ever seen. I REALLY hate to say this, but that would push me over the edge and go from Android to Apple. But indeed, it is a concept so I’m forever with Android. :)

      I can’t believe no one niticed that THIS IS NOT FRM APPLE. It’s just Apple fans who think Apple is the only company who can make nice things telling them what they want in the next iPad

    Badass

    If this was real, I would buy this in a heartbeat.

    Cool ideas.

    I’m trying to wrap my head around the off surface “air controls” the players are using during the football game. That and the 3d holographic images. I suppose this would require a technology analogous to the XBox 360 Kinect, but smaller and with much greater accuracy.

    And the 3d holographic images, i have no idea how that is possible without multiple projectors, although, I suppose that since there are two iPads there, each one is seperate image source.

    It’s funny because many will see this and think it’s actually true. I say this because many thought the next iPhone (now the 4S) would have had that laser keyboard and the other features and were extremely disappointed when it turned out it didn’t.

      By “many” who exactly do you mean? You think your a*s is a good source of information, but it’s not.

  • Domingo

    and this is a story because? fantasy concepts mean nothing. Make them real and I’ll be impressed. BTW, maybe somebody can show the technology behind the goal post poping up. As far as I know it doesn’t exsist. Now some apple fanboy douche is going to turn this into a REAL tablet coming.

    Concepts expand the possibilities because people let their imaginations run wild.

    @3 I work for a cellphone company. I had to explain to people why their iPhones didn’t have a laser keyboard as “advertised”. I can only imagine how many others posed that question to people working in an Apple Store. To put it into perspective, people still come and ask me why I tricked them – why their iPhone 4S doesn’t show 4G as connection. Or, how come their phone only had 3G available when it was supposed to be a 16G/32G/64G phone.

    So no, I’m not using my a*s as a source. Just because you and I visit this website and make ourselves informed doesn’t mean everybody does.

    Insane. I would think the future is not to far off. iPad20s

  • JUST SAYING

    unfortunatly its Apple!

  • zzZZzz

    @Someguy,

    Based on tech trend, I’d say iPad 10ish :)

    Minimize kinect tech, improve on 3d tech, make better batteries. Oh, and the magnet idea to lock the tablets together is BS though – it would damage the screen.

    Someone has way too much time to waist :)

  • ExcessDan

    Well, bezel less displays should be coming at least. Did Samsung not promise them this year?

  • David

    Great concept, till the 3d hologram nonsense…

  • Me Ted

    I believe the SGS III will come closest to having that edge-to-edge screen this year.

  • WP74Life

    two words, g*y and fake.

  • TechGirl

    They probably have this somewhere hidden in Tokyo lol

  • Richard

    That was so fake!
