FLEXIBLE PHONES CONTINUE TO BE DEVELOPED

In another leap in technology, the HoloFlex is the next step in flexible holographic phones.

With the ability to move the device to see 3D objects from different angels, and then to bend it to see things in a whole new perspective, the HoloFlex is the closest we’ve gotten to a truly flexible phone.

Designed and created by researchers and Queen’s University, the HoloFlex is still in early development. At the moment it only sports a low160 x 104 resolution.

This display unlike those that have come before it are truly flexible, as it lets you interact with applications in a much more hands on way.

This is a 1920 x 1080 flexible OLED but images are rendered into 12-pixel wide circular blocks projected through a 3D printed microlens, totalling 16,000, leaving you with an image that literally pops out at you.

"By employing a depth camera, users can also perform holographic video conferences with one another", says the university's Dr. Vertegaal.

"When bending the display users literally pop out of the screen and can even look around each other, with their faces rendered correctly from any angle to any onlooker".
