Flexible Phone Concept Bends To Control Apps

This phone has a bendable screen, and it isn't just for show: it's equipped with a bending sensor and can actually be used as a form of input, like a stylus or your fingers on touchscreen displays. Our colleagues at Engadget Chinese got a chance to check the concept out at Touch Taiwan 2015, where it was being showcased by local manufacturer AUO. The company claims the device and its 5-inch, 1,280 x 720 AMOLED screen is unbreakable -- true or not, it does look a lot more pliable than, say, the LG G Flex 2, as you can see in the GIF after the break.

In the animation below, it's clear how bending the phone itself can control the Google Earth app: AUO says the device has six degrees of freedom for bending input. The company also told Engadget Chinese that the technology can easily be scaled up and used for phones with higher resolution or even bigger devices. Incorporated into tablets, the technology could allow users, for instance, to twist one of the sides to turn to the next page while reading ebooks.
