Kyocera has shown a new and interesting concept of future phones. This concept future phones are folding phone, having a flexible OLED display. This concept future phones were designed to feel like a ‘living skin’. To enable this feeling this concept future phones designed using polymer, semi-rigid materials. This concept future phones also have a kinetic-energy based generator, making energy from our movement. Because of this ,this concept future phones will be more efficient.
This concept future phones use flexible OLED display. OLED is a new display technology. This technology use light emitting organic materials. By using this types of materials beautiful and efficient displays can be created. This OLED displays are very thin. This displays can be put on flexible materials such as plastic or metal foil. So it’s possible to make this displays foldable and because of this this displays are flexible. These displays will be more durable and virtually shatter-proof because they will not be covered with glass.
This concept future phones are shown by Kyocera is known as Kyocera’s EOS folding concept phones. Because of having a flexible OLED screen, this concept future phones will be able to change theirs form from a clamshell into the size resemble to a wallet . The designer of Kyocera industrial Susan McKinney said that by this concept future phones they tried to create a more humanistic relationship with our phones. This concept future phones will have a semi rigid and soft skin which will surrounds the flexible OLED display of this concept future phones. This skin of this concept future phones is resemble to living skin because they provide protection and constant evolution. This is why this concept future phones will provide heightened user experience.
The shape memory of this concept future phones will allow keys to morph up from its surface when needed and they will fade away when they are not in use. The flexibility of the screen make will this concept future phones more adaptable . Because of this this concept future phones can be folded into a size resemble to a wallet but when it will be unfolded a huge screen will be revealed . This concept future phones also have physical interaction with them. This interaction will be used to translate kinetic energy into an electric charge via some nano-scale piezoelectric generators.
But this Kyocera concept future phones are still in their early design stages. The design teams which are from San Diego and Bangalore are trying to explore many different ways and possibilities for this concept future phones to make them more exotic.
