Nokia's Morph: Ultimate Flexibility

A phone you can turn into a slingshot?  Well, you can't quite do that, but this concept phone is stretchable and flexible - and definitely cool.

Nokia Research Center and researchers at the University of Cambridge have teamed up to create a joint nanotechnology concept dubbed "Morph". The two teams announced their partnership back in March of 2007 and the Morph is one of the first projects to emerge from the partnership. Launched today, the Morph is part of the "Design and the Elastic Mind" exhibition, on view from February 24 to May 12, 2008, at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Morph, as it is appropriately named, is comprised of flexible materials that can be reshaped on the fly to create a variety of drastically different forms.

Don't expect any of this tech in a consumer device soon, though Nokia thinks it could get some of this tech into devices within 7 years.
