Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Nokia's NanoTechnology Research - Nokia's NanoTech Research Agenda, Results and Future Directions" report to their offering.
This report analyzes Nokia's research into NanoTechnology for Mobile Devices, carried out with the University of Cambridge. This research is implementing their Morph concept from 2008, and is exploring a wide range of NanoTechnologies. We draw information from research publications and presentations, patent applications, demonstrations and other documents to assemble a complete picture of Nokia's research, its implications, and its future directions.
Technologies for: Flexible and stretchable devices and circuits Flexible high-power fast-release batteries Materials that repel water and absorb solar energy Flexible touch-screen displays Harvesting energy from 500mhz-10ghz RF and more
Around three years ago Nokia released a video of their Morph concept, a mobile device based on nanotechnology. This vision included a flexible and stretchable phone that could be bent into many shapes and worn as a bracelet. It included sensors for things such as rotten or unclean food, and the ability to recharge from the sun.
The report draws information from Nokia patent applications, presentations, demo videos and seminars, which cover most of the innovative features of their concept.
Many areas are being researched with multiple applications in mind. For example, technology for flexible & stretchable electronics for a Morph-like flexible cellphone can also be used for a glove that senses movements as an input to a phone or computer. Also, thin and flexible batteries for a Morph-like device can also enable stronger camera flashes because of their high storage & fast energy release. Multiple applications of the same core technology may enable Nokia to bring NanoTech innovations to market sooner, without waiting for the entire Morph vision to be implemented.
Grizzly Analytics believes that some of the technologies detailed here, such as flexible device components and device materials absorbing energy from the sun and ambient radio energy, will start to reach market in 5-7 years, while other areas such as nano-sensors and completely flexible devices will take until 2020-2025.
BOTTOM LINE: Nokia & others are getting first access to technology that will revolutionize electronic devices form & function. Others will buy components, but risk being behind in understanding the implications for hardware integration and design.
