Mighty morphing mobile displays

08 May 2013

A team from the British University of Bristol’s department of Computer Science, led by Anne Roudaut, has chosen the name Morphee for a class of thin electronic displays it is working on. The displays have the ability to change (or morph) their physical shape to suit the function required of them within a device. The work was presented at the recent annual Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) held in Paris, France.

Included in the presentation were six examples of functional Morphee devices, which focus on different applications such as privacy, gaming, home-training memory shapes and other uses. This short video demonstrates a couple of these, as well as explaining how the material shifts is shape based on applied currents.

Whilst the focus of the research is on mobile phone-type devices, there is no reason why it couldn’t be applied to the displays on devices similar to the latest generation of multimedia conference units from Bosch, Televic et alia or to control interfaces and presentation tools.
