The latest trend in the development of technology leads to the fact that the mobile phone learns, in addition to general functions, to perform more and more specific ones. And, quite possibly, in the near future there will be mobile phones designed for different professions. The concept of the first such device was proposed by the designer Marco Vanella. Motoworkr Is a mobile phone for doctors.
There seem to be two opposite trends in the development of mobile phone technology. The first is an increase in all kinds of common functions that will make a mobile phone a universal device that can literally do everything that other gadgets can do. An example of this is the iHolo holographic phone from designer Kingyo Xie. The second is the development of specialized, even professional functions. For example, the Motoworkr phone for doctors.
Of course, Motoworkr won't be able to do surgery, differential diagnosis, or prescription for semi-legal pain relievers. It is designed to facilitate the doctor's work, to make it much faster and more accurate.
As conceived by Marco Vanella, Motoworkr, in addition to the functions common to all mobile phones, should be able to perform four specific professional actions. With its help, the doctor will be able to change the patient's temperature, check his pressure, listen to internal organs, as well as read and edit a digital medical record of a person (hardly anyone doubts that in the future the medical record will be exclusively in digital form). And the phone's firmware will contain many programs in order to work with these tools, to analyze their readings.
It would be interesting to look at the concepts of similar mobile phones for other professions, for example, an electric welder, a watchman, or, say, a call girl.
