Nokia Twist Concept is a Phone, Not a Surfboard

Concept devices are cool in that they show what some people thing the future of products might be like. Generally, the concept is something that will never come to market and is just a flight of fancy. This Nokia Twist concept is just such a product that will likely never see stores, or at least not any time soon.

Nokia Twist

The Nokia Twist smartphone concept looks like a pool toy or surfboard to me. It could also be a gel insole for your shoes. The concept comes from Nokia Design and Nokia Research and was designed as an exploration of the promise of nanotechnology. I’m not sure how nanotech would be used to contort your phone into different shapes, though.

It appears that the device can be twisted and flexed to perform different actions, and it would have a flexible see-through touchscreen display. There is a ton of research going into flexible electronics today, so who knows if 10 or 20 years from now our smartphones might look like this. Check out the video below to see what Nokia is up to with the Twist.
