Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone


With Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone Kyocera is changing the future of cell phones. Kyocera unveiled a kinetic energy-powered phone that is capable of folding up like a wallet. Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone has been designed by industrial designer Susan McKinney, and the phone consists of a soft, semi-rigid polymer skin surrounding a flexible low-energy OLED display. Shape memory in Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone allows the phone’s keys to pop up when in use and blend in with the surface during downtime.
Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone can be used in its folded-up shape for simple phone calls, and unfolds to reveal a wider screen. The exciting thing about Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone is that it derives its energy from human interaction. The more you use the Kinetic Flexible Phone, the more kinetic energy turns into an electric charge through an array of tiny piezoelectric generators. In other words, you’ll never have to worry about leaving the house with a semi-charged cell phone again.
Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone is still in the early design stage, but Kyocera hopes to integrate concepts from the device into cell phones in the near future. Kinetic Flexible Cell Phone is the future of the greener phones already introduced by Samsung and LG that use solar energy to charge up.
