Nokia Working on Super Flexible Mobile Phone

nokia morph

Nokia has another futuristic mobile phone concept that might possibly redefine the way we use mobile phones. Introducing Morph – a joint project joint nanotechnology model created by Nokia Research Center and the University of Cambridge.

Morph is a concept that demonstrates how future mobile devices might be stretchable and flexible, allowing the user to transform their mobile device into radically different shapes. It demonstrates the ultimate functionality that nanotechnology might be capable of delivering: flexible materials, transparent electronics and self-cleaning surfaces.

The photo above is actually just one mobile phone that you can twist and stretch into different shapes such as bracelet, tablet forms or whatever weird design you want to do. It reminds me of the good old Play-Doh and its tag line: Imagination Taking Shape.

You can view the actual concepts at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York from February 24 to May 12, 2008.
