Meet the Mobile Phones of Tomorrow

Abstract:
One of the most striking concept phones we've seen is Nokia's Morph. Made of flexible materials that mimic the suppleness of spider's silk, the handset will -- as the name implies -- morph between what looks like a traditional mobile phone and a bracelet. Tapani Ryhanen, head of strategic research at the Nokia Research Center in Ruoholahti, Finland, calls Morph a shape shifter.

"By using nanotechnology," Ryhanen says, "the phone can change its personality to become whatever is most suitable for the task at hand."

And slobs of the world can rejoice: Morph will even clean itself. "It will shed foreign material, similar to how a freshly waxed car will repel water and allow it to roll off," Ryhanen says.

Morph will also help you live more healthily. An array of microscopic sensors will enable the phone to measure environmental hazards such as carbon dioxide levels or sense the blood sugar imbalance of a diabetic. "The nanosensors will continuously monitor different environmental things, from air pollution to the body's biochemical processes," says Ryhanen.
