Nokia has demoed a new technology at Nokia World that shows how the phones and tablets of the future could be bendy.
Exploring whether we need another input method beyond touch and voice, Nokia has developed what it calls the “Nokia Kinetic Device”.
Currently only available as a prototype, the new display technology can be bended to control movement on the screen. Bending forward with two hands zooms out of whatever is on screen for example, while twisting the top left hand corner away from you allows you to click to the next menu item.
The prototype device, which Nokia refused to say when we would see in a commercial product, is currently being used to control music and photos but it is easy to see how the technology could be used in other devices like mobile phones or tablets to control gaming, web browsing and other apps.
