Remember the curved phone from LG, the LG G Flex? There's actually truth to its name. Not only does the back cover 'heal' from scratches, the phone itself is actually, honest-to-god flexible. It bends without breaking or damaging the phone. So yes, this device may look silly - but the future is peeking into the present here. Quite amazing.

So, this is the future? Pfft. I want robotic homemakers, space cruisers, flying cars! That was the future that was promised us in the '80s.. Who cares about scratches when, after a day of work, one has to drive for 2 hours in a giant traffic jam only to find out he needs a shirt ironed?



In the future, your shirt will iron itself! \o/

In the future there is no physical need for shirts as our environment will irradiate us with comfortably focused heat rays wherever we go. Only modest and technophobic holdouts will be seen wearing such relics.

For self-identity, we'll all have programmable tattoo ink embedded within our skin that can change our appearance at will and even react to touch, eliminating the need for carrying devices, which is good since we won't have pockets ;)
