    Revolutionary new paper computer shows flexible future for smartphones and tablets

    ScienceDaily (May 4, 2011) — The world’s first interactive paper computer is set to revolutionize the world of
    interactive computing.

    “This is the future. Everything is going to look and feel like this within five years,” says creator Roel Vertegaal, the
    director of Queen’s University Human Media Lab. “This computer looks, feels and operates like a small sheet of
    interactive paper. You interact with it by bending it into a cell phone, flipping the corner to turn pages, or writing
    on it with a pen.”The smartphone prototype, called PaperPhone is best described as a flexible iPhone — it does
    everything a smartphone does, like store books, play music or make phone calls. But its display consists of a 9.5 cm
    diagonal thin film flexible E Ink display. The flexible form of the display makes it much more portable that any current
    mobile computer: it will shape with your pocket.
