Nokia Has An Interesting Patent On A Flexible Device

Nokia has filed a rather interesting patent titled “User Interface, Device And Method For A Physically Flexible Device”. If you’re wondering what’s so special about a flexible display, after all, many manufacturers are busy working on similar devices, right? Well, in this patent, the device shall perform different tasks depending on the way it’s bent. For example, if you bend it in a such a way that it resembles a beer can, then it could perform a search for a bar or pub in the neighborhood; if you bend it to resemble a bowl, it’ll search for a restaurant or bar; if you bend it the other way, resembling a roof, it’ll search for a hotel or something along those lines. Nokia is envisioning such technologies to become the norm by 2015, and we certainly wouldn’t mind that, right?
