Researchers at queen’s university’s human media lab have developed a new smartphone called Morephone which can morph its shape to give users a silent yet visual cue of an incoming phone call, text message or email. You can leave Morephone on the table and observe visual shape changes when someone is trying to contact. Morephone is made of thin, flexible electrophoretic display manufactured by plastic logic – a British company. Sandwiched beneath the display are a number of shape memory alloy wires that contract when the phone notifies the user. this allows the phone to either curl either its entire body, or up to three individual corners. each corner can be tailored to convey a particular message. Morephones could be in the hands of consumers within five to 10 years. [Via : walyou & queensu]
