Nokia Morph – Possibilities with Nanotechnology.

| February 27, 2008 | Reply

A long while ago, I once thought that the ultimate stage of the mobile phone would be the complete integration with the human body, via the use of nanotechnology. No physical handset; screenless integrated vision through your eyes, biosensing of health and mood and features controlled by thought. Perhaps that was one to many Sci-Fi shows watched then huh?

But even at the speed that nanotechnology is growing at, I’d be hard pressed to see that level of advancement in my lifetime.

However, Cambridge University and Nokia Research Center feel that perhaps nanotech could be the way to go in the future of mobilephones. This concept video shows the versatility of Morph. Fold it, bend it, wear it; it’s super dirt replant and can even ‘smell’ things. I’m not sure what exactly I’d be using the latter feature for. Perfume buying for events such as this Sunday’s mother’s day? (I haven’t got anything yet…)


Prices start at $1,000,000 and will ship next quarter. J/k.

Since it’s just a concept video, they should have pushed on the features. Apart from charging by illumination what about by movement? Or molding to any shape, i.e. something gaming friendly should N-gage still be alive by then.

Reading some of the vdeo comments, I find it a little funny how some iPhone haters are already crowning this phone as it’s like “the only way Nokia can really attract the iPhone crowd is with a phone we won’t see for a long long time”.
