That will finish Apple

The bloke who invented the smartphone says that soon the technology will be integrated into our bodies.

American engineer Martin Cooper made the first-ever mobile phone call 50 years ago long before Steve Jobs claimed to have invented the mobile revolution.

Now, he thinks that future phones would ditch the current form factor and become a part of our bodies.

Speaking at the Mobile Congress Congress (MWC) the 94-year old said the logical place would be to have the phone embedded under the skin of their ears. Cooper was at the MWC to pick up a lifetime achievement award to celebrate the golden jubilee of the iconic phone call he made to his chief competitor Joel S. Engel using the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X.

According to Cooper, these next-gen devices won't need to be charged as they would draw the small amount of power required from the human body.

"Your body is the perfect charger. When you eat food, your body creates energy, right?”

Cooper acknowledged that privacy and addiction have become serious concerns now. But he has "an abiding faith in humanity" and said that "somehow people have figured it out" considering all the technological advances we have had so far.
