  • Nokia R&D

    The Nokia Gem concept introduces the idea of a cell phone whose entire body is a touch screen.

    The front, back, and sides of the phone are an interactive display that changes depending on what function you're using at a given time. In this example, a map is displayed on the map, while the side of the phone provides access to apps and RSS feeds.

    Nokia also wants the Gem to take on chameleon-like capabilities by looking and acting like other devices - for example, if a user launched the camera app, the entire interface of the phone would resemble an actual camera.

    Not all of NRC's ideas are focused on hardware: the centre has also come up with apps and software like Nokia 3D World Gaze.

    The app, which is available now for Meego and Symbian users, gives a glimpse of the world inside and out.
