The Morph concept phone

Morph, a concept cell phone co-developed by Nokia Research Center and the University of Cambridge, is among the projects featured in "Design and the Elastic Mind," an exhibition of art-meets-technology advances on display through May 12 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Morph is intended to demonstrate how nanotechnology might be used to make mobile devices stretchable, flexible, transparent, and easier to keep clean.

Announced in March of last year, the partnership between Nokia Research Center and the University of Cambridge is intended to initially focus on nanotechnologty applications. NRC has established a research facility at the university's West Cambridge site and collaborates with several departments, including the school's Nanoscience Center and Electrical Division of the Engineering Department. Although Morph technology likely will be incorporated first in high-end handsets, it eventually will find its way into low-cost mobile phones, Nokia says. source: CNET
