NEC Tag - a bendable cell phone

Posted on Saturday, Dec 02 2006 @ 22:50 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
NEC has a cool new phone prototype, codenamed "tag".

The phone is made of rubbery "shape-memorizing" material that bends and twists.
Forget extra armbands — the thing is an armband. It's too bad the tag is just a concept right now, as it would be the perfect phone for the forgetful and the accident-prone. Once NEC gets this into production (no plans right now, apparently), you can bet it'll have to prove its mettle overseas before it makes it over here. You know, like every other mobile phone ever made..
