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.
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.
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.
