Although sadly not  a collaboration with Tony Hart and his plasticine playmate, Nokia's new Morph concept phone promises to expand our minds with some spanky new nanotechnology.

Unveiled at the 'Design and the Elastic Mind' exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York this week, the Morph concept phone sees the Finnish phone giant teaming up with the University of Cambridge to create a phone concept which 'demonstrates how future mobile devices might be stretchable and flexible'.

This follows Nokia's other recent phone concept, the environmentally-friendly Remade, unveiled at Mobile World Congress earlier this month.

The Morph features transparent electronics, solar charging and environmental sensors, as well as being self-cleaning – all possible through the magic of nanotechnology.

We're told that elements of the Morph concept may be available in high-end Nokia devices within seven years' time, so we'll have to make do with our boring old rigid, opaque phones for a while yet. Boo.

Next up – the Chas Bluetooth headset.
