Ok, impressive. I didn’t think they had it in them anymore (I’ve been a Sony-Ericsson convert for a number of years now), but the Nokia Morph concept looks very interesting.
From the press release: “Morph is a concept that demonstrates how future mobile devices might be stretchable and flexible, allowing the user to transform their mobile device into radically different shapes. It demonstrates the ultimate functionality that nanotechnology might be capable of delivering: flexible materials, transparent electronics and self-cleaning surfaces.“
More here on nanotechnology and the future of mobile phones. Now to make it come true.
Tagging on my previous post on “shift happens“, ever serious site BBC Machines states that machines will achieve human-level artificial intelligence by 2029. And we’ll be having nanobots inside our bodies.
“Predictions are that by 2013 a supercomputer will be built that exceeds the computational power of the human brain.” I’m especially interested in this one; I should be around to witness it. Let’s just hope that supercomputer doesn’t turn out to be Skynet.
Since 1996,the WayBack Machine site has been archiving about 85 billion web pages. I’ve gone in and looked at the history of my site … boy, have I come a long way too. 🙂
Over at this site someone went in and looked as some big brand names like MacDonalds, CocaCola, Pepsi and Lego. It’s “interesting” to see how primitve websites were back then in what we seen now as the stone age of the Internet (but which very exciting and cutting edge at the time.)
