iPhone 7

3D modeler Martin Utrecht is back with his latest render, and it's of the iPhone 7, which is reportedly already in production, with Samsung already beginning to mass produce the A9 chip that will power the mobile device. Industry sources claim that Apple may hold two press events next year, to showcase the iPhone 6S in spring, and in September, to unveil the iPhone 7. Utrecht says: "Based on an idea from tech editor Steven Tweedie from Business insider I visualized what an iPhone 6 would look like with the display pushed to the edges. One concept looks at making the display wider - by doing so the overall physical dimensions of the iPhone become smaller than that of the iPhone 6. The other concept imagines a display which goes all over the front...with a few holes in the display where the speaker and touch ID/home button go."

Touchscreen Bracelet

The Cicret Bracelet, designed by a Paris-based design company, takes wearable technology to the next level with a wristband that projects the screen of a smartphone directly onto the user's arm. They tout it as "like a tablet...but on your skin," projecting the interface of a remotely connected mobile device onto the forearm or inner wrist. Users will still be able to use hand gestures, such as swiping, tapping, and pinching, for everything from replying to emails to answering calls while your phone is on the other side of the room.

Balloon Smartphone Case

Did you just get a new iPhone 6 Plus or Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and don't yet have a case for it? Well, before your next outdoor trip, simply grab a regular balloon to make one in 10-seconds or less. Simply blow up the balloon, place the phone over it, have one person loosely hold the balloon opening while the other holds the phone down, and soon, the balloon begins to mold into the phone's shape. Sure, you might not have access to your device's various ports or earphone jack, but it will at least keep some parts of it safe should the phone slip out of your hands on a hiking trip.

StoreDot

We've covered StoreDot before, but now it has gone from purely a prototype, to something that will be ready to hit stores in 2016. This device utilizes nano-technology to synthesize artificial molecules, and the company has developed a battery that can store a much higher charge more quickly, acting like a sponge to soak up power and retain it. The prototype you see above is far too bulky, but the production model will be slim enough to fit in your pocket. Doron Myersdorf, the founder and chief executive of StoreDot, says consumers should expect to pay $100 - $150 more for fast charging models with this technology.
