be demoed rather than used, so beware
|People Shell ||
People Shell is a new client shell that is designed from the beginning to include
devices, buddies, sharing, and communication. Existing solutions have grown haphazardly as these new technologies and
services have evolved, so a clean-sheet design is warranted.
Flop exemplifies a software to hardware strategy for a carrier.
It starts with a J2ME blackberry, then a J2ME phone, and ends with
a custom hardware device. Note: scroll this page

|| Instant Message Pod (IMP)
is a very small messaging device. Its novel folding keyboard enables
a very small form factor. This prototype is centered on a teen device,
but the same design could be used as a sleek, enterprise messaging
device. Click the "about" and "tour" links to get explanations. Note:
IMP has to download music so at first it may appear to be silent after
you click on it to open it. |
The scroll wheel and right button map to the scroller on the device and the back button. Try it to see what I mean.
|A second-generation of IMP with a
camera playing a more important role. This is both a TXT device and a phone. Click the device link in the upper-left corner to toggle. This has a newer user interface than IMP. Play some music and then click ring to simulate receiving a call. Note: If there's a web camera
attached to your machine, this may connect to it.
EyePop is an example of a teen-oriented site for existing cellular devices.
Click on the about link on the bottom for a description.
A consumer device version of IMP would need a similar web presence to support the device
and build community.
|| Display Fixes simulates
a new justification algorithm that does
a better job of flowing text on a narrow display. It uses letter spacing
to widen narrow lines, but not as much as full justification. The
scroll wheels are active, so scroll up and down. Note:
this can be slow to display because it's doing word-wrap in script.
