Kyocera, which isn’t exactly known for their cell phones, apparently has a couple tricks up theirs sleeves and if they’re not applied correctly they might just remain that. What you’re looking at is the EOS, an ultra smart cell phone that features ‘a soft, semi-rigid polymer skin [which] surrounds a flexible OLED display’. When the keys aren’t in use ‘shape memory’ allows them to morph into the phone’s surface. What’s wackier than that? The ability to charge itself through physical interaction using an array of nano-scale piezoelectric generators. It’s extremely unlikely that we’ll ever see this concept come to fruition, but Kyocera hopes to incorporate some the technologies into future phones…of this decade.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
