Among all current computers in the Apple line, the iMac Which has kept the same design for longer: the current format has been around since 2012, but if we consider the design more broadly, we look the same since 2004, with the introduction of the iMac G5.
There are those who say it doesn't move in a winning team, and in fact the design of the iMac is one of Jony Ive's most timeless and successful works. With the departure of Apple's legendary designer, however, it may be a good time for a renovation. For this, Philip Goolkasian You have a good idea.
The designer created an impressive concept for an iMac future by bringing to the all-in-one ideas presented in other Apple products, such as the iPad Pro it's the HomePod. From Apple's professional tablets, we have the infinite screen (even the edges would look identical to the look and feel of iPad Pro); from the smart speaker, we have an advanced sound system that lives in the lower portion of the computer and supports playback surround multi channel.
To make room for the speaker system, the concept ports would switch places for the iMac's three USB-A, four USB-C (with Thunderbolt 3 support, I think), an Ethernet, and a headphone jack. heard. The outside button and SDXC card slot would be moved to the bottom edge of the screen for easy access.
We have other cards up our sleeves: the infinite screen could extend beyond the side edges, making it possible to merge two iMacs with almost imperceptible visual interruption; The side of the screen would be able to hold and carry the second generation Apple Pencil. The top of the screen would have a TrueDepth system for Face ID and a second camera in the upper right corner for augmented reality experiments.
Another very interesting leap from the cat is at the bottom of the iMac: aptly named “AirPower”, the surface would be able to carry wireless devices such as iPhones or the AirPod case. In addition, the sides of the base would also have coils for loading wireless, so you just have to touch the Magic Trackpad and Magic Keyboard on them to charge the peripherals.
Amazing, isn't it?
