Future of Internet Search: Mobile version

Future of Internet Search: Mobile version

Mobile version

(Followed by a previous post “Future of Internet Search“)
This is what I wish the internet search will be able to do with a mobile device in the NEAR future. Touch screen, built in camera, scanner, WiFi, google map (hopefully google earth), google search, image search… all in one device. Like this way, when you can see a building through it, it gives you the image search result right on the spot.

Choose a building and touch a floor and it tells you more details of the building.
Well, it doesn’t have to be a building, but it can be any object you see. You can use it when you want to know a car model, an insect name, what kind of food is served at a restaurant and how much, who built a bridge, etc. etc. But as a designer myself, I hope it’s able to tell me a name of a font of the type I see, the size, color (in RGB), and so on.

Mobile version

It’s got a scanner built in, so you can use it this way when you want to check the meaning of a word in the newspaper, book, magazine, etc.

It would be much easier to read a real book. You can use the dictionary, wikipedia, thesaurus and anything else available on the web. What do you think?


Future of Mobile Internet Search: Applications


I think the following ideas should enhance the functionality of the device I introduced. Many applications like these will be developed that have never been possible.


Indoor guide
Works in a building, airport, station, hospital, etc.

Helpful when you want to find out a word from a lot of text

Look at What You Don’t See Through Glass


Here are some more examples of how you might be able to use the device I introduced before.

You can even see flowers that are not actually blooming.

Visual aid for any book. It means any book can be a picture book.

If it could be wirelessly in sync with your mobile phone or other mobile devices, visualized data exchange could be done like Microsoft Surface, but with this device, you wouldn’t have to stick with 2D.

Speech Balloons for the Hearing-Impaired


Speech balloons in comic books show very well how the characters speak. If we could instantly visualize how people speak, wouldn’t it be nice for the hearing-impaired? It means they can SEE our voices.
