The outlandish idea of a new era, where thinking machines will meet and exceed human intelligence does not seem that crazy anymore. Today, humans have broken past the bodily limits, there is a change in the skills we value most and we owe it all to the present day technological evolution.
Brian Arthur, author of ‘The Nature of Technology’, believes that Technology evolves over time: “machines started as disparate pieces of seemingly unconnected technologies, but like humans, they also have an origin and a process of evolution.”
Backed by Guerilla Ventures, a tech startup – Comet Core Inc. has built the world’s first buoyant smartphone – Comet. This smartphone is seemingly the answer to “What lies beyond water resistant smartphones?”
Talking of his reason behind building a buoyant smartphone, Founder & CEO Comet Core , Prashanth Raj Urs says, “Mobile Technology has been constantly evolving from Pagers – Antenna Phones – Camera Phones – Smartphones – Smartphones with Gorilla Glass – Dustproof Smartphones – Water Resistant Smartphones and now, with comet we aim to introduce the next step to Water Resistant Phones – the buoyant Smartphones.”
California-based company was founded by Prashanth Raj Urs in September, 2014. Other team members include, Matthias Mande (President and Chief Business Development Officer), Ian Brewster (Chief Operating Officer), Gareth Tilley (Chief Marketing Officer), Allen Nejah (Technical Advisor) and Lowden McLean Owen (Legal Advisor).
Comet will cost between $300-$375 depending on whether consumers choose the 16 or 32GB option.
