Nokia is working with Cambridge University on a phone project involving nanotechnology. Nanotechnology would enable flexible and stretchable phones that would enable users to shape and adapt them as they see fit.
Nokia explained that this will revolutionize the phone industries – flexibility, transparent electronics and self-cleaning display, all of them attest to that. However, we sincerely hope that this will not be just pure Sci Fi talk and that Nokia will indeed make such a gadget available to masses. There are rumors circulating that we might actually see something like this in 2009.
The Nokia and Cambridge University partnership was announced in March 2007, although the video of such a phone appeared even earlier on Youtube. You can view the video here.
