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

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."

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."
