The Kyocera Proteus concept phone – a flexible, rollable, wearable smartphone.
This is a smartphone and a fitness wearable rolled int one. Kyocera says that this device can have three configurations – holding it in one’s palm like a conventional smartphone, rolled like a bracelet on your wrist like a fitness band, and attached or clipped to a fitness vehicle like a bike for added fitness and GPS information. By using it on your wrist you can monitoring your heart rate, run speed and distance and numbers of steps. This happens thamks to the sensor at the back of Proteus.
But Kyocera admits that a number of technologies need to be mainstream before this product can be launched. One of them would of course be flexible AMOLED displays. Another would be flexible batteries
