Smartphones that change their physical shape could one day be bending and flexing in our pockets and hands, researchers suggest, with so-called "Morphees" adjusting to suit the user and current application. The concept of "self-actuated flexible mobile devices" - in short, phones and portable computing terminals that can bend, twist, open like a flower, or collapse to suit different use-cases - is one being explored by a team at the University of Bristol and DFKI Saarbrücken, and due to be presented at CHI 2013 this week.

Researchers develop world’s most efficient flexible OLED display

Researchers develop world’s most efficient flexible OLED display

We saw a flexible display concept from Nokia back at Nokia World in October, and Samsung filed a patent application not too long ago that revealed the company was working on potential foldable display applications. Researchers at the University of Toronto have demonstrated that the technology is feasibly possible on a large scale. They’ve managed to combine OLEDs with a flexible plastic, leading to more efficient displays and a simpler manufacturing process.
