Nokia Morph phone concept
I guess that Greenpeace report, slamming Nokia for the sharp drop-off in environment friendly practices, is really bugging Nokia.
Within a week of the report release we get Nokia Evolve 3110, a somewhat updated version of 3110 classic, with a “green” angle.
Since then the leadership of green initiatives was taken up by Nokia research division.
All these initiatives sum-up into not a much more then a PR vaporware, but the Greenpeace report was also mainly a PR issue for Nokia. So let the Finnish “green” PR offensive continue. We are getting some pretty nice pictures of possible future phone designs, at least.
And today we are treated with one more interesting “green” phone concept – Nokia Morph
The main idea behind Nokia Morph concept phone is the use of nanotechnology based flexible materials, transparent electronics and self-cleaning surfaces. These materials should enable Nokia to produce a mobile device that “…might be stretchable and flexible, allowing the user to transform their mobile device into radically different shapes”.
Different shaped devices you see in the picture, is actually the same one mobile handset, that transforms itself into the concrete shape according to the user needs.
The concept was developed by Nokia research center in cooperation with Cambridge University and is on display at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
