Nokias future phone looks like a teardrop

November 11, 2011

we have seen how Nokia wants to bend the future of phones with flexible displays and now Nokias future lab showed us a concept video on how it could all work together.


nanotechnology, with a bendable transparent display and a fully touch sensitive casing are only some of the visions that Nokia cooked up.

Check out the video:

not sure if I agree with all of it, but there are some nice ideas in it.


The wooden Ruler 2.0

July 27, 2009

The ruler is one of those everyday things we use and never really think about it twice. This is how it works and that’s it.

2 designers with the support of udk industrial design department designed the “Electronic Ruler”. It is a concept that measures the length of drawn lines no matter where on the ruler you start and stop drawing. It can also measure the distance between 2 points, add the value of different lines and change its scale.

To make it even cooler they placed a set of LEDs under a thin strip of wood-like material that displays the digits.

The answer to Microsofts surface table?

February 25, 2009

I am pretty sure MS is not faced with this new invention, but I think it is an interesting idea and I am sure people will come up with loads of things to do with it.

It is a flexible display consisting of foam and force sensors which is deformable. It’s called Impress and works with the parameters position and time like other touch screens as well, but in addition to that, it reacts, above all, on the intensity of pressure.

New flexible and unbreakable Display

December 9, 2008

HP and Arizona State University today announced the first prototype of affordable, flexible electronic displays.

image Flexible displays are paper-like computer displays made almost entirely of plastic.

This technology enables displays to become easily portable and consumes less power than today’s computer displays.

Popular applications for the technology could include electronic paper and signage.

The first practical demonstration of the flexible displays was achieved through collaborative efforts between the FDC and HP as well as other FDC partners including DuPont Teijin Films and E Ink.

All I can say is that this will be awesome once it gets to the market. Thinner, lighter, unbreakable and cheaper displays – what more do you want?
