Nokia demonstrates electronic skin UI research3
The concept user interface would utilize a stretchable, foldable 'skin' that could be adapted to any number of configurations (i.e. around the wrist, on the hand, wadded up in the pocket).
This electronic skin would provide conductivity via evaporated gold, maintaining its function despite deformation. As the research is far from complete, consumers won't likely see this technology for years to come. It's still fun to think outside the box of the traditional mobile device.
What potential applications do you see for the technology?
