Intriguing product-centred nanotech powered concept device called Morph from Nokia / Cambridge Nanoscience Centre currently featured in The Museum of Modern Art “Design and The Elastic Mind” exhibition in NYC. The whole concept reminds me of what the boys and girls at IDEO might have concocted. Nice.
Flexibility is at the heart of the new device using materials and components that are stretchable, transparent and very strong. (via)
I like the way the device interacts with it's environment and a wearable, stretchable, fold-up-able, self-cleaning 'phone' is of course the stuff of dreams.
Check out the video here - interesting (if slightly confusing?) storytelling... and naturally I'd be very keen to explore what services the device might enable. Also, what's the service equivalent of geeked out product design meets nanotech concepting?
I wonder, is it ever possible to explore future service / experiences and present them in such a way without an engaging physical manifestation?
(note to self - next post will not feature Nokia)
