Pushing the limits: PaperPhone to replace SmartPhone
A PaperPhone is… an iPhone so flexible, that you’d think you are holding paper in your hands. The creator of this contraption, Roel Vertegaal, the Director of Queen’s University Human Media Lab thinks this will replace all phones in the next 5-10 years.
This ultraportable PaperPhone prototype performs all actions of the smartphone (you can record books, listen to music, make calls etc). Featuring a 9.5 cm diagonal thin film flexible display, this sounds like the start of a paperless world (save the trees!).
To be unveiled on May 10 at the Computer Human Interaction 2011 conference in Vancouver.
