Nokia | Nanotechnology ‘Morph’ concept

December 31, 2010

Morph is a concept demonstrating some of the possibilities nanotechnologies might enable in future communication devices. Morph is a flexible two-piece device that can adapt its shape to different use modes. Morph can sense its environment, is energy-harvesting and self cleaning. Nanotechnology enables Morph to have adaptive materials yet rigid forms on demand. It is featured in the MoMA online exhibition “Design and the Elastic Mind.” Morph has been a collaboration project of Nokia Research Center and Cambridge Nanoscience Center.

Giiks | At the headquarters of Nokia in Finland at the event “The Way We Live Nokia Next,” I was able to approach the Morph mockups and take some pictures and a video. Nokia wants to end mobile design with traditional materials and relies heavily on the development of nanotechnology. The result is simply stunning and this look is futuristic. For Nokia, it’s a new era of electronics, who hopes to release this type of product quickly.
