15 Things We All Wish Our Phone Could Do

Technology is a wonderful thing – but there's some stuff it can't do. However, with the Renault ZOE, you can get futuristic phone technology today.

1. Warm up a cold cup of tea.

Because there's nothing more heartbreaking than the missed potential of a cold cup.

2. Open your front door.

And lock it. Perfect for when you're slightly merry and are waving the keys in the vicinity of the door.

3. Project a hologram of yourself sitting in your desk.

Or on the spare seat next to you on the bus to stop a weirdo plonking themselves down. Would be useful for holding your place in a queue too.

4. Detect when you're in a boring conversation and ring itself.

Or make a distraction sound, like a kitten meowing from under the floorboards, when it sensed an overly long awkward conversational pause.

5. Tell you if a strange cat/dog is friendly before you pet it.

Because you never know, and you miss out on lots of petting opportunities because of it.

6. Every time you try to text your ex, it replies with an unflattering photo of them.*

*Instead of sending it.

7. Be solar powered.

Because the amount of time it spends plugged in to the wall, it might as well be a landline.

8. Change colour with your mood.

Or with your outfit choice.

9. Translate ALL languages.

Even animal talk.

10. "Shout" when it's lost.

It would be really useful if it could sense when you're a certain distance away and "shout" to you to ask if you really meant to leave it under a sofa cushion.

11. Self-clean off your finger grease.

Because touchscreen phones are the quickest way to remind you how filthy your fingers and face are.

12. Dry your nail varnish.

Maybe some sort of air-blowing attachment or ultraviolet light mechanism?

13. Act as your passport/official ID/Oyster card.

Because it would just be really, really useful.

Because it would just be really, really useful.

14. Recall drunk texts.

Or any option to sense drunk texts and convert them in to mundane things. Eg. "I RRLLY RERRLY LOVR YOU!!1" could turn in to a reminder to stay in school and not do drugs.

15. Tell you when you've smudged your make-up…

BuzzFeed

…or have something in your teeth. Because even your best friend won't always do that.

With the Renault ZOE, you don’t have to wait for the phones of the future…
