iPad 3 concept video: How Apple could really blow us away

iPad 3 launch

The window for design firms to spit out flashy iPad 3 concepts is closing now that Apple has announced plans for an iPad event on March 7, but here’s one late entry that’s fun to ponder. Follow the Apple iPad 3 launch live with our liveblog from the event: Live: Apple iPad 3 launch.

San Francisco’s Aatma Studio, which specializes in 3d animation and digital content, shares its vision for an iPad 3 that boasts an edge-to-edge Retina Display and makes use of near-field communications (NFC) and internal magnets to connect and communicate between iPads. What’s more, this futuristic tablet would support 3D multiplayer hologram-based games, such as the football game shown in the video.

New iPad review

We’ve collected some of the most colorful and intriguing iPad 3 design concepts previously, but this Aatma Studio presentation is probably the most elaborately imagined to date.

It's been about a year since Apple showed off its market-leading iPad 2, and the new iteration -- whatever it is formally called -- is expected to boast a 2048-by-1536-pixel Retina Display with better resolution than the current screen, a more powerful processor (maybe a quad-core A6), a better camera (8mp), bigger battery and possibly support for 4G LTE networks.
