In pictures: Mozilla's Seabird concept phone

The underlying concepts are a wonder

Working directly from community feedback, designer Billy Mays produced his concept smartphone, Seabird. Here's a visual tour.

Mozilla smartphone: Pico projector

Today's mobile projectors are open to "expanding user interaction and input at the same time," May says. "The Seabird, on just a flat surface, enables netbook-quality interaction by working with the projector's angular distortion to deliver interface, rather than content. With the benefit of a dock, each projector works independently and delivers laptop levels of efficiency."

Mozilla smartphone: Design

The form factor's development "took its cues from various aerodynamic, avian and decidedly feminine forms," May says. "Its erect posture intends a sense of poise while its supine conformity to the hand reconciles that with the user's desire for digital control. The curvature of the back also serves a functional role in elevating the projector lens elements when lying flat."
