SMARTPHONES are getting slimmer, lighter and bigger - and in the near future they are set to become BENDIER too. The world’s first flexible smartphone ReFlex is as little as five years away from becoming a high street reality say its makers. Currently in development at Queen’s University’s Human Media lab in Kingston, Canada, the first prototype was recently unveiled to industry experts at a conference in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Calling it ‘revolutionary’, Queen University’s school of computing director Roel Vertegaal says the ReFlex will change how we use our smartphones in the future and make the current  ‘rigid’ smartphones seem out of date.
