First featured in The Museum of Modern Art "Design & Elastic Mind” Exhibition in New York.
This is an team effort of Nokia & University of Cambridge as Nanotechnology concept device.
Device concept showcases some revolutionary leaps explored by Nokia Research Center (NRC) in collaboration with the Cambridge Nano science Centre (United Kingdom)
Morph concept device is ?
Bridge between highly advanced technologies specifically nanoscale technologies and their potential benefits to end-users.
According to Nokia, intended to demonstrate how devices in the future could be stretchable and flexible allowing the user to change the shape of their device on a whim.
According to Digital Trends' Geoff Duncan, Morph "features a flexible and stretchable shape, self-cleaning surfaces, transparent electronics, solar charging to keep the batteries running, and the ability to wrap around your wrist when not in use."
Technology behind it
It is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. (popularized in the 1980's).
Offers better built, longer lasting, cleaner, safer, and smarter products for the home, for communications, for medicine, for transportation, for agriculture, and for industry in general.
Features making it future device:-
Helps in everyday life
Advanced power device
Strength of spider silk
Morph helps us in our everyday life
Allows us to control physical properties of nanostructures and devices with single molecule precision.
Morph enables us to observe our local environment.
Morph can detect specific chemical compounds in air.
Advanced power device
Nano wire grass harvests solar energy
Nano materials enable solar energy on large scale future buildings can be covered by solar cells
Surface of morph is super hydrophobic
Makes it extremely dirt repellent
the nanoscale structure of electronics enables stretching
Nano scale electronics become invisible to human eye
Technical & Future prospects
Home defences(door lock, window cleanage,as tool against stranger)
Defending from sudden attack
Removing snow & ice from cars.
And many more ………
Morph concept technologies might create fantastic opportunities for mobile devices:
Newly-enabled flexible and transparent materials blend more seamlessly with the way we live.
Devices become self-cleaning and self-preserving
Transparent electronics offering an entirely new aesthetic dimension
Built-in solar absorption might charge a device, whilst batteries become smaller, longer lasting and faster to charge
Integrated sensors might allow us to learn more about the environment around us, empowering us to make better choices
