If you like to sit on your phone or throw it around when you’re upset check this concept soft phone out.

The phone is encased in a flexible plastic housing. A soft polymer insert is located between the microchip module and the casing. You can drop it, bend it, sit on it, toss it around.

The phone has a flexible display which looks like paper, but the incorporated ink can change positions when affected by electric signals to form images on the display. The process, called “electrowetting” works at the speed of light you can even watch a video without a hitch, a technology developed by Robert Hayes and Johan Feenstra. Although the phone itself is a concept, the “electrowetting” technology is no fairy tale.
