R&D Core imagines a future where your mobile device is the size of a pack of gum with this foldable phone design concept.

The 'DRAS Foldable Phone' is able to fold over onto itself using 'Resistive Area Sensing' technology able to overcome the limits of modern touchscreen smartphone technology. The phone is capable of being packed away for easy portability and storing in two different size modes, but it can also still leave some screen displayed for showing notifications to the user.

The concept is certainly an ambitious one and the possibilities this sort of technology could bring to mobile devices would certainly revolutionize the digital landscape. Unfortunately, for now the 'DRAS' remains only as an intriguing "what if" idea to ponder.
