Countdown to the iPad 3 launch: six days and counting. We’re all intrigued to see what Apple’s got up its sleeves, but a video that’s cropped up on the web showing what a future iPad could be capable of has just spoilt us rotten. Read on to see what the iPad 4 could look like.
The video in question is by famed Apple fakers Aatma Studios, and the level of CGI sheen is admirable, given that it’s all cobbled together out of nothing more concrete than hopes and dreams.
The iPad 3 is likely to boast a far prettier display and some beefed up processing power, but that’s nothing on this concept, which sports an edge-to-edge display in the style of the rumoured Samsung Galaxy B.
It’s also got special magnetic NFC powers: snap two iPads together and the displays merge to form one larger image. So far, so 2013. But then things get mental. Aatma’s video sees the connected devices beam out holographic inputs and graphics from all angles.
Projected game controls fire out of either side while a 3D, holographic version of Madden is played out across both screens. We may be waiting a while for all this, but we’d recommend you watch the video nonetheless. Warning: the iPad 3 may look a bit tame after you’ve seen it.
