Researchers at Nokia and the University of Cambridge have created a nanotechnology concept called Morph that will be on display at New York's Museum of Modern Art through May. A stretchable, flexible self-cleaning mobile device, Morph can take the form of a credit card for dialing, an ear bud for talking and a bracelet with a programmable print (like computer wallpaper) for wearing.
