Haptic Goodness plus Morphing Buttons from Shapeshifting Phone

In Terminator, the T-1000’s memetic poly-alloy could allow it to morph itself into person while the iPhone uses Haptic technology to tell you when you’ve pushed a button. Put the two together, and you get the new Nokia Shapeshifting Phone. This phone features a touch screen interface much like that of the iPhone and the HTC Diamond, but kicks it up a notch with the inclusion of a tactile touchscreen that morphs into the buttons that you need. The buttons form using a two layer construction with a liquid injected between them. When the unit is called upon to be a phone number pad, the keys raise and create one. When you need to type text messages, you can even call upon the surface to give you a QWERTY keyboard. Though this technology is probably years away from production, it’s nice to know that the folks at Nokia haven’t stopped in the wake of the iPhone craze.
