Nanotechnology enables materials and components that are flexible, stretchable, transparent and remarkably strong. Fibril proteins are woven into a three dimensional mesh that reinforces thin elastic structures. The nanoscale mesh of fibers controls the stretching when the device is folded. The surface of morph is super hydrophobic which makes it extremely dirt repellent. Nanoscale grass harvests solar energy which could be used for recharging batteries.
Since the KAIST, developed a transparent resistive random access memory (TRRAM), the idea of morph technology seems to be growing. By integrating TRRAM device with other transparent electronic components, we can create a total see-through embedded electronic system which became the major platform for Nokia morph technology
The concept of NOKIA MORPH has been introduced to the global world at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City from February 24 to May 12 of 2008 as part of the "Design and the Elastic Mind" exhibition. The concept emerged through collaboration between Nokia Research Center and Cambridge University Nanoscience Center in the UK. Since the KAIST, developed a transparent resistive random access memory (TRRAM), the idea of morph technology seems to be growing and Nokia Research Center collaborated with Cambridge University Nanoscience Center and initiated to develop this fairytale concept a reality and researches are still undergoing. Nokia also added a concept video regarding morph on YouTube which received 2.3 million viewers on its initial week. This technology enabled phones are expected to reach the global markets around 2020.
