Interesting concept, but I am a bit skeptical about the reality. This one in particular caught my eye:
"For example, in Spiral 3, hardware modules will communicate via inductive connections rather than direct electrical contacts."

Inductive connections at the power levels found in a cell phone? I am not an electrical engineer, so this might be perfectly feasible, but from what I know, it seems pretty out there.
