While looking for the answers we find that we learn more about mobile phones.Every member need to give an answers.Here are our group answers:
-New mobile phone invention of detecting voices.This innovation is for the blind people. With only using their voices, the mobile phones while do exactly as the owner want. For example, typing the message for the owner and send it according to owner request.Therefore, blind people can have easier access on using the phone.
-This innovation is for security. We suggest to use fingerprints or voice to lock the phone so that no one can access to your personal info from the phones.
-We also suggest to install Autocat application. This can help architect to do their work anywhere, anytime . It make works become easier and architect does not need to bring their laptop.
-Global Positioning System (GPS). Use GPS by using our voices because it is hard when you have to drive and need to search for the places you want at the same time.
-Charge mobile phone using solar energy.
-Use mobile phone as credit card. Does not requires wallet anymore.
-Make mobile phone as projector.
