The Morph concept
The “Nokia Morph” is a theoretical future device based on nanotechnology that might enable future communication devices. It is intended to demonstrate the flexibility of future mobile devices, in regards to their shape and form allowing the users to transform them according to their preference. It demonstrates the ultimate functionality that nanotechnology might be capable of delivering i.e. flexible materials, transparent electronics and self-cleaning surfaces. It also features nanosensors that can interact with the environment to provide key information for anything from temperature changes to pollution.
Nanotechnology enables materials and components that are flexible, stretchable, transparent and remarkably strong. Fibril proteins are woven into a three dimensional mesh that reinforces thin elastic structures. The nanoscale mesh of fibers controls the stretching when the device is folded. The surface of morph is super hydrophobic which makes it extremely dirt repellent. Nanoscale grass harvests solar energy which could be used for recharging batteries.
Since the KAIST, developed a transparent resistive random access memory (TRRAM), the idea of morph technology seems to be growing. By integrating TRRAM device with other transparent electronic components, we can create a total see-through embedded electronic system which became the major platform for Nokia morph technology.

The concept of NOKIA MORPH has been introduced to the global world at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City from February 24 to May 12 of 2008 as part of the "Design and the Elastic Mind" exhibition. The concept emerged through collaboration between Nokia Research Center and Cambridge University Nanoscience Center in the UK. Since the KAIST, developed a transparent...
