Once they work out those kinks, the future of bendable devices could be much stranger than you thought. How does a “self-actuated flexible mobile device" that alters its own shape on the fly sound to you? A team of researchers at the University of Bristol and DFKI Saarbrücken are working on such devices and the results of their ideas and work are both impressive and bizarre.
