Nokia’s Research Center Unveils Futuristic & Flexible Concept Phone [Video]
Design

This concept phone from Nokia, known as ‘HumanForm’, was created to translate the mobile company’s most promising new nanotechnologies into meaningful user experiences and set goals for future product portfolios that turn them into real devices for consumers. The phone’s kinetic user interface enables natural interactions, and the lack of buttons, conventional design or a dedicated screen is made up for with tap, gesture and bend controls, a futuristic teardrop shape, and the whole device functioning as a display.

The project is a key step towards bringing significant user experience benefits to the market, enabled by nanotechnology. Nokia HumanForm is a visionary solution for a dynamically flexible device for uses beyond touch screen and voice communication where technology is invisible and intuition takes over.
