CNET UK brings us this infographic video, The Animated History of the iPhone. I love this style of animated, infographic video, and they did a great job with this one. Some of the data goes by quickly, but that just means you’ll have to watch it again.
What’s better than an infographic? A video infographic, that’s what. In anticipation of the announcement of the iPhone 5, currently tipped to be on 4 October, we’ve made a gorgeous animated video charting the history of the iPhone. (Editor’s note: this turned out to be the iPhone 4S, so have a look at our preview while you’re here)
We’ve divided the iPhone into its component parts and charted how the technological and design developments of the past few decades have influenced the look, feel and features of the different models so far. If you want to know what connects the Walkman to Tim Berners-Lee to the NeXTcube, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ve seen previous, popular videos in this design style (like the music video to Remind Me by Royksopp and the Little Red Riding Hood project). In fact the brief image of the world map in the iPhone video looks like the same illustration as the Royksopp video. It just highlights California instead of the UK. If you’re going to be inspired by an infographic video, they picked one of my favorites.
