Researchers at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario said that they've developed a smartphone that can be bent. This phone is named Reflex, a phone with a high resolution color screen, and has multi touch technology and the most special is the "input bend" technology, ie the phone can be controlled by means of bending it.

Screen that can be bent is in fact not found by Vertegaal and his team, but they use it to help them envision the future of computers. According to Vertegaal, he and his team used the screen and then think about what can be done with the screen in the context of the interaction between humans and computers.
The team, consisting eight researchers have already adapted the flexible display into a phone prototype that can be bent like a book bent to turn the page. With such capabilities, Vertegaal said that this opens up new possibilities that can be achieved by a computer.
