Nokia Flexible User Interface Prototype
The Nokia “Kinetic Device” made its debut at the Nokia World show in London recently. Two years in the making, this gesture-based gadget lacks keys or buttons in favor of a thin flat OLED screen, which executes commands when the body of the device is flexed. Experimental carbon nanotubes within the device allow it to be twisted and warped to scroll through photo albums or stop and play music. Designer Tapani Jokinen maintains that this Kinetic Device will likely not see production soon but represents the tip of the innovation iceberg from the Scandinavian mobile company.
