PaperPhone: a smartphone prototype with the flexible display

We already told you about flexible E-Ink screens which can be used on clothes from a fabric and a material Tayvek. Today we suggest you to look at a prototype of the paper phone created by group of researchers from University Queens (Queen’s University) and Arizonian University (Arizona State University).

Thanks to thin-film technology, the PaperPhone case is not thicker some usual paper, but unlike the last possesses a smartphone functional. In fact, before us no other than a piece of interactive electronic paper. On the 9,5-centimetric screen it is possible to write, draw and print. With its help it is possible to call and read books, thumbing through pages as the presents.

The project will be presented at the CHI 2011 conference which will take place on May 10 in Vancouver, Canada. The devices constructed on the basis of thin-film technologies, should find the application at offices, hospitals and schools.
