Every generation of technology must have its odd duck. For the smartphone, that duck is going to be the Synaptics Fuse, a concept smartphone that fully explores just what the concept of control really means. SlashGear reports that the Fuse will have a multitouch capacitive display. On its own, that's enough to get excited about.It will have 3-axis accelerometers. They'll be directional, rotational, and built into the screen. There are also capacitive scroll strips and proximity/force sensors running down the side and back. You can roll through lists by sliding your finger up and down the back, or squeeze it to reset and change the on-screen view back to menu. Tilting it will change panes, and a finger on the back panel will let you handle your open apps. Very few new devices are truly innovative. The Fuse is one of them. No smartphone has ever had a control scheme like this, but it sounds utterly brilliant. No longer will you need clean hands or both hands to easily operate your smartphone. No hard spec data exists on this exciting concept phone, but Synaptics will be debuting it at CES 2010.
