An interesting concept video produced by Nokia. According to Nokia, the concept shown in the video allows users to experience immersion and effortless navigation in new ways. New types of interactions involve near-to-eye displays, gaze direction tracking, 3D audio, 3D video, gesture and touch. Through these new types of social linkages people will be connected in innovative ways between the physical and digital worlds. Cool idea. However, when will such technology become available since the video was produced one and half years ago?

I learned about the Nokia Morph concept phone couple months ago and was very impressed with Nokia’s vision for how handsets might evolve. The Morph concept is a collaboration project of Nokia Research Center (NRC) and Cambridge Nanoscience Center.
Morph concept phone is a flexible two-piece device that can adapt its shape to different use modes. Nanotechnology enables to have adaptive materials yet rigid forms on demand. Morph is a concept demonstrating some of the possibilities nanotechnologies might enable in future communication devices. Morph can sense its environment around us and empower us to make better choices. Also, Morph is self-cleaning and self-preserving and hence repels water or dirt. Furthermore, Morph has built-in solar absorption capabilities to re-charge itself.
I am excited about the R&D of Morph and its potentials of creating a world of radically different devices that open up an entirely new spectrum of possibilities. Morph concept and nanotechnology will unleash new applications and services that will allow us to communicate and interact in unprecedented ways. This will in turn revolutionalize the way we use mobile devices in teaching and learning in the future. To learn more about Nokia’s Morph concept, please view the below video.
