Nokia unveils Morph concept phone

Nokia Morph concept

Morph is a new concept mobile device developed by Nokia Research Center (NRC) and the University of Cambridge (UK). The Morph shows how future handsets could be made of self-cleaning flexible materials, transparent electronics that would change shape for different purposes. The materials used allow the Morph to stretch and flex, allowing the user to transform their mobile device into radically different shapes.

Nokia claims that some elements of Morph could make their way into handheld devices within the next seven years, albeit only at the high-end at first. Nanotechnology also holds the promise of delivering low cost manufacturing solutions.

According to Dr. Tapani Ryhanen, Head of the NRC Cambridge UK laboratory, Nokia, “We hope that this combination of art and science will showcase the potential of nanoscience to a wider audience. The research we are carrying out is fundamental to this as we seek a safe and controlled way to develop and use new materials.”

More pictures of the Morph are available at Nokia.
