Nokia Morph

When Nokia conceptualized the Morph cell phone, it wanted to show how nanotechnology could radically change portable electronics. The Morph is made of transparent and flexible material, is self-cleaning, and includes nano-sensors that can learn from the environment. In one example, Nokia suggests that the nano-sensors would be able to detect airborne threats and alert users to them.

The Morph, as its name suggests, would also change form, the company says: "Using the same principle behind spider silk, this elasticity enables the device to literally change shapes and configure itself to adapt to the task at hand."

Nokia has a video posted to YouTube that delves into how the Morph works.
