Shell is an innovative hybrid device that combines a smartwatch with a smartphone

 

Why bother carrying around a smartwatch in addition to your smartphone? Wouldn’t it make more sense to just get rid of one of the two options? This is the idea that went into the design of Shell, the first smartwatch in the world that can turn into a full-scale smartphone.

This one-of-a-kind piece of technology is expected to make its debut on Indiegogo at the very end of this month. It has 4G connectivity, a handset that can be extended, a camera that can rotate in all directions, and a water-resistant design.In addition, the company has developed an intriguing solution for manual charging that is fueled by the energy that is generated by the user’s own hands.

This multi-purpose device will operate as a standard smartwatch when it is docked in its cradle and left to its default settings. Simply remove it from its charging cradle in order to use it as a phone at any time. The flexible ‘wings’ will automatically spring out, with one side carrying a microphone, the other containing a speaker, and both sides containing an antenna. Following that, you should simply use the device as you would a smartphone.On the company’s Commando units, you will find full standalone connectivity options for 4G, GSM, GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth, as well as radio communication.

In addition to its peculiar appearance, one of its distinguishing characteristics is the fact that it must be charged manually. By continually stretching the handset’s “wings,” you can use the device’s internal dynamo generator in the event that you find yourself in need of a little bit more electricity. You earn one minute of conversation time for every minute that you spend flexing your muscles. in addition to a moderate amount of exercise!

The top wing houses a 12 megapixel camera that can be spun in any direction, giving you the ability to take images or record video in whatever direction you choose. Additionally, it is compatible with the majority of selfie sticks.

You will have your choice between two completely different designs. The standard model, as well as the more robust Commando variant, which is designed for people who lead very busy lifestyles. The company is also working on a solution to provide some of these advantages to customers who already own smartwatches. It has the intention of developing a bespoke smartphone cradle that will be compatible with a variety of devices, such as the Apple Watch, Samsung Gear, LG, Moto 360, and Huawei Watch.
