Nokia has unveiled what could be the phone of the future – and it bends like an elastic band and cleans itself. The Morph concept was launched this week and will be on display at The Museum of Modern Art in New York for the next few months. The technology certainly looks impressive; the phone can be used as a keyboard and then 'folded' up to become a more traditional handset and has the power to run on solar energy. It also has the capacity to be bent into a bracelet or ring shape, potentially wrapped around the wrist for ease of access, and can take on the same colours as the clothes a user is wearing. Nokia confidently predicts that the concept may "reinvent the form and function of mobile devices".
