Nokia Research Center stuns us all with a dazzling concept phone that remains further away from traditional phones. The Nokia concept phone named HumanForm is the outcome of a flexible display, bendable body, kinetic interaction and nanotechnology experiences. The all-touch-screen phone concept can be bent to zoom an image and stretched to pan an image. Once realized, the HumanForm phone will revolutionize the way we use phones these days.
HumanForm concept has the form of a fish and it could be transformed to any shapes, indeed. As Christopher MacManus of CNet describes, HumanForm signifies the departure from the rectangular shape of conventional phones to the modern phones with flexible body and display. You can stretch, bend and twist the Nokia concept phone. The new interface, along with the bendable display, is capable to perform several actions once you do some physical gestures with the device. Indeed, there will no limitation in your liberty to use the phone.
According to Nokia, the concept phone is “a visionary solution beyond touchscreen and voice communication where technology becomes invisible and intuition takes over.” Of course, the specialty with the phone remains in its bendable body and flexible display. The Finnish mobile maker has taken the brave step to move ahead the industry beyond touchscreen and voice communication technologies. The concept heralds that an era of flexible and more user friendly smartphones is coming up.
Of course, in near future, we will be witnessing many phones with no hard body and displays. The Nokia concept will be an inspiration for many technology makers to produce similar advanced gadgets. Here are some important features that the Nokia concept phone will have.
First flexible phone
Nokia HumanForm is the first phone to have a flexible display and body, as well. We have been long hearing about bendable displays. It is a time the tech world is going to get a stunning smartphone from Nokia with a supple body and other components.
Nokia calls its groundbreaking phone concept a humanized phone. Indeed, it is because the phone carries the name HumanForm. The company might have meant that the phone would be up with some features that would attract people largely. The process of bending, twisting and stretching is a natural human habit. Moreover, the phone is to realize a new interactivity with emotions and intuition.
Nokia HumanForm concept phone is capable for any physical manipulation. It can do most of activities through physical manipulation. Besides a keypad or multitouch display, you can use HumanForm phone to give commands via physical activities. For example, you can bend the device to zoom an image and stretch to pan the image on the screen.
Nanotechnology enabled experiences
You might have wondered how such a highly flexible phone could be developed. Definitely, Nokia plans to build HumanForm harnessing nanotechnology enabled experiences. Nanotechnology is the only way you can contain many controls, buttons and others in a small space. Being a tiny and handy product, HumanForm will be working with nontechnology.
Bendable and transferable display
The proposed phone from Nokia will have a bendable and transferable display. Once the device is turned off, you can see through the display. Moreover, it is a bendable screen, meaning that you can twist the entire device along with the display. Actually, the bend-to-zoom and stretch-to-pan actions work on the device because it has a bendable display.
Nokia’s dreamy flexible smartphone will be up with the much-coveted gesture interaction. Apart from just pressing on some buttons, you can show some gestures to the device’s display and the body. Gestures like bending, twisting, stretching and shaking will do many activities on the phone. All phone activities could be managed via these gestures.
Totally touch sensitive
The concept envisages the device to have absolute touch sensitivity. It will come with an entire sensitive touch case. You can give inputs to the device touching anywhere on the device.
