OnePlus showed off its latest prototype creation, the OnePlus 8T Concept. It features a number of cutting-edge technologies, including a colour-changing rear case in response to various triggers. One of these ways is very useful to notify you of notifications when your phone is laid flat. You can also ignore notifications with just a wave of your hand, the rear camera array is equipped with an mmWave radar sensing module that monitors movement in nearby environment.
Radar is good enough to detect breathing patterns, says OnePlus, and the back of the phone can even change color over time with this to keep you calm and relaxed. One concept demo video shows off an app that can monitor breathing, although if you use it to regulate your own breathing, you won’t be able to see the screen. This discoloration is made possible by the metal oxide film mounted on the phone case. Since different voltages are applied to it, managed by the hardware inside the phone and the software running on it, the shadow on the back shifts from dark blue to light silver. OnePlus calls it Reactive Sensing Technology.
The OnePlus 8T concept uses a combination of natural design inspiration and advanced technology to create more natural interactions between users and devices. design with a natural design in part of the Pamukkale “multi-colored water flow in hot springs” in Turkey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its stunning natural limestone terraces. You won’t be able to buy the OnePlus 8T Concept, but this is an interesting snippet of what might be coming soon on the device we carry in our pocket. Radar technology is no different from the Motion Sense system we saw on Pixel 4 phones, which were then dropped on the Pixel 5.
Combining the changing colors on the back of the Electrocromic OnePlus 8T Concept with mmWave sensing technology is just the first step in opening up a variety of possibilities about how people interact with their smartphones,” OnePlus said. In the near future, we believe there will be more uses for Reactive Sensing. The color diversion and radar sensing capabilities of the OnePlus 8T Concept are quite amazing.
