10,000 CG iPhone 5's used as dominoes to demonstrate NFC concept technology

Aatma Studio has created a pretty amazing video to demonstrate what NFC technology could do in the iPhone. We aren't talking your typical boring concept video, we're talking 10,000 computer-generated iPhone 5's with a hypothetical NFC chip installed that are knocked over like dominoes passing information from one screen to another.

It's a pretty cool concept, even if it doesn't happen anytime soon. Make sure you watch through until the very end as that's arguably the coolest part of the entire video. The folks at Aatma Studio have been playing around with CG iPhones for years now, including a morphing iPhone/iPad video that was just too cool. These 10,000 iPhone 5's are purely CG, but Aatma has certainly put a lot of thought and effort into the concept and the video. Maybe someday Apple will hope on the NFC bandwagon and they can try it again in real life...

10,000 CG iPhone 5's used as dominoes to demonstrate NFC concept technology


I don't get it, but cool to see it turn to a monitor at the end. I wonder what software they used to make that happen ?

I knew from the get-go that it was most definitely some sort of computer graphics. But at the same time, I really wanted to be real!!!! Could you imagine having millions of dollars worth of iPhone 5's at your disposal?!!!!!!

The text displayed before clicking on the article does not state that.

I suspect other readers, like me, read that teaser text to decide whether to click for the full article. If they do click, they skip the text they already read and start "after the jump."

I'm surprised to see that the text was different (at the time I'm posting this, anyway).

Now, I don't see the point, either.

There are some problems to be able to see this through the iphone, but i finally saw it and this is just awesome, by the way, how they got 10,000 iphones?

Nice case, but I prefer the Pong Research <a href="http://www.pongresearch.com"> iPhone case</a> . I read that the cell phones emit radiofrequency energy, a form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation, which can be absorbed by tissues closest to where the phone is held. That's why I investigated ways to cell phone radiation protection. I read about Pong Research cases, Pong technology is custom-designed for each mobile device and works to redirect radiation away from your head and body. I hesitated about it, anyway, I bought a case Pong because is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.

That was so cool! Now I just want NFC. iPhone 5s anyone? I can't wait for iOS 7, too! If anyone else is looking to get iOS 7 beta, they can from http://udidreg.com. I bought from them, and they let you download iOS 7 beta, before it's released to the public!
