You can stop inventing, I think we`re good. "Quit bashing Canada". That would be like no longer picking on your kid brother. We still love ya. OOOOHH CAANAADAA, FOR SPACIOUS SKIES, FOR AMBER WAVES OF GRA.... Who your song, the McKenzie brothers?

I can`t see this being practical for a phone, but I can think of lots of other very useful applications for this technology.

Dumb. Not surprised it came from the country that produced Cat5.

I think this is more a "proof of concept" product than something they expect to be marketed. It has applications outside of being flexible phone.

I think that the bending to scroll/whatever would be tedious for the general user, but I could see it as an aid for blind people.
But I guess there`s already voice-activated-commands technology for that.

bending as an input method is just stupid and over thought...touching is MUCH easier and you don;t have to memorize different ways to touch the screen as you do with bending...

I like the very slim felxiable display but the bending has to go.

good concept but bending for input is, well, just dumb. Touch is way easier and everyone can understand "touch this to activate" but "bend this like so to activate this or that" is silly.

I love it how people cant imagine what the possible uses this technology could lead to. This looks like a prototype anyways, not something to be actually sold.

Yap, I have no beef with the Great White North, some of my favorite bands hail from there among other things, I just don`t think it is a good design.

And the point of this is??? Yeah you can have flexible screens but what about the phones chassis? they`re normally metal.
Ok we work around that. What about the ion lithium battery?
How do you make the rest of the phone flexible?
A rubber phone? Who wants that? Why bend a phone when you can click it with one finger. Completely useless experiment. I really cant see a use for that crap. Stick to what you do best Canada....Fu*k all

I don`t see the use for this at all. Nice try canada. Stick with epicmealtime, now that is a lasting contribution to society.

Obviously it still needs a lot of development, but this is certainly going to lead to some interesting stuff.

besides looking pooty, bending as a form of input is stupid, you could use your finger on a TOUCH SCREEN

I`m sure that there will be all sorts of industrial uses for flexible electronics in the future.

While this is great technology, I see quite a few flaws with the design. It would eliminate breaking and scratching which lowers the cost of replacements. However, I don`t see this being a very practical application for a phone. I mean... pocket dialing would be one of the top issues. But with it being so thin, it would be easy to slip out of someones pocket by a thief, or to loose under stacks of papers. Its a cool idea... but I really don`t see it getting too far unless they find a REALLY awesome marketing ploy.

If you could incorporate a touch screen phone, with the flexibility of that, and stick it in an iphone casing, your screen cracking worries would be over.

This is just one step towards getting better technology. While it may seem rather useless now, imagine what they could get from it all.

I`ll jump on board with all the negative comments and just add...

Isn`t this a step in the wrong direction, like when the stylus pens had their own alphabet?

The bend gesture idea is really a step back from what we already have. It`s clunky, imprecise and annoying. Also, unless you can manage to fit all of the electronics for the phone within that screen, it will need to be wired to some sort of hard box filled with the memory, etc. And who seriously wants that?

While, yes, it works. I personally wouldn`t ever buy something like this. I`m going to wait for holographic interface.

"Hey, Let`s stop using easy buttons and make phones you have a bend-code for!"
"Great Idea"


Only In Canada.....

Ok a flexible smartphone is NOT a bad idea at all. a big display that doesn`t make it feel like you have a brick in your pocket would be awesome.

That said, flexible gestures are just a drating retarded idea.

it would take too long to do anything i`d much rather have a probably cheaper, slightly thicker iPhone

interesting idea, and I think there is a place for flexible displays, but the bend gesture is stupid. Why bend the phone to select something when you can just press it? They are just over-engineering it.

My thing is that the cell phones are too thin and too small already. Not to mention bending a printed circuit - let`s talk about a product designed to fail.
