Cubimorph Touchscreen Device Shifts Shape as Needed

Cubimorph Touchscreen Device Shifts Shape as Needed
The innovative Cubimorph prototype changes shape to offer touchscreens in different configurations.

Created by a team from the University of Bristol, the Cubimorph is made up of modular cubes with touchscreens on every side. These cubes are joined with a “hinge-mounted turntable mechanism” to form a chain able to self-reconfigure to suit the function of the device. In one example given by the team, the Cubimorph could shift from phone shape to a console shape for gaming.

Although the Cubimorph is still in the development phase, the team believes it is a significant first step towards a truly modular interactive device.
