The Computer Revolution/The Morph Concept

The Morph concept is a concept created by Nokia that would introduce the science of nanotechnology to a mobile device. Nanotechnology involves creating computer components, machines, and other structures that are less than 100 nanometers in size. Nanotechnology would be applied to a mobile device that could be flexible, stretchable, and able to changes shapes at the user’s demands. Nanotechnology in a mobile device would make room for solar charging capabilities, letting the battery be smaller and having more room in the phone for other features. With more space in the device, it opens up the options for further advancements in communication, applications, and services. The Morph mobile device would be self-cleaning, preventing corrosion and natural wear and tear using the idea of "nanostructured surfaces" that would repel water and dirt. The Morph would help us as the consumers be more in tune with our environment by being able to detect the amount of pollution in the air, or if there are chemicals on the food we're about to eat. The Morph will truly be an electronic masterpiece in the ongoing trend of nanotechnology. [1]

The Morph

The Morph concept device by Nokia was launched at The Museum of Modern Art “Design and the Elastic Mind” exhibition in 208. It is intended to be able to bend into numerous shapes, such as bending around the wrist, or held at the face to the ear. With its transparent color, the device would be see-through yet phone functional that can allow the phone to absorb solar energy to recharge the battery. Fibril proteins woven into mesh reinforce the elastic structure. It is being explored to use biodegradable materials to production and recycling easier and environmentally friendly. It is expected that the Morph concept might cost less and include more function in a smaller space with the use of nanotechnology.
