Future mobile phones could be bent and stretched into different shapes based on a concept model unveiled by
The companies launched their joint nanotechnology concept, dubbed Morph, to demonstrate how future mobile devices might be stretchable and flexible, allowing the user to transform their mobile device into radically different shapes. The project aims to show that ultimately nanotechnology might be capable of delivering flexible materials, transparent electronics and self-cleaning surfaces.
Prof Mark Welland, head of Cambridge’s Nanoscience Group and director of the Nokia-Cambridge collaboration, said: ‘Developing the Morph concept with Nokia has provided us with a focus that is both artistically inspirational but, more importantly, sets the technology agenda for our joint nanoscience research that will stimulate our future work together.’
