Nokia : HumanForm , the future?

HumanForm was created in a joint effort between Nokia Design and Nokia Research Center to translate the most promising new nanotechnologies into meaningful user experience, prototype those for decision making; and transfer and set aspiration for future portfolio.

Project is a key to bring significant user experience benefits to the market thereby creating mindshare and value share through nanotechnology enabled experiences.

HumanForm is a visionary solution for a dynamically flexible device beyond touch screen and voice communication where technology is invisible and intuition takes over. Natural interactions are enabled with kinetic user interface.

HumanForm concept and a follow-up Nokia Kinetic Device prototype were launched in Nokia World 2011.

Nokia Gem : Jewel of the 21st Century?

Recently nokia released a video of its concept phone NOKIA GEM. Showing of the use of a fully functional all display touch screen phone. If that’s the perfect way to describe it.

Nokia GEM was launched to celebrate 25 years of existence of the Nokia Research Centre and this device is all about the touchscreen it incorporates on its front, back and sides. The back is also interactive, so you can pinch to zoom from the rear, without cluttering the front screen. This function also comes in handy when using maps and probably games too, as proved by the Sony PS Vita.

Senior Design Manager Jarkko Saunamäki is the one who lead the team that created GEM and recently claimed that once you launch an app, for example the camera application, the entire phone will begin to look like a camera. How? Well, there’s an entire image wrapped around the phone, since it’s a whole touchscreen after all. The coolest thing about this device is that it also allows people to carry advertising on the back of the handset when making calls, so they would get a discount on bills. How cool is that? 3D images viewed from all angles are also supported!


Check out the presentation below for more info on the NOKIA GEM.

Do leave a comment after watching the video letting me know what you think about it , do you want to be real or just a fantasy.
