PaperPhone Computer

The world’s first “thin film smartphone and interactive paper computer” is a prototype of both a computer and smartphone made from a thin and flexible paper-like substance that can be interacted with in a manner similar to paper. Pretty soon, we’ll be able to manufacture all types of electronic devices at home by printing them.

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.

PaperPhone is the world’s first nextgen, thin film smartphone and interactive paper computer. It is based on a 3.7″ flexible electrophoretic (E Ink) display that does not consume electricity when it is not refreshed. Thinfilm sensors allow the phone to respond to bending of the screen to navigate pages in ebooks, play or pause mp3s, make phone calls, or navigate apps. A flexible wacom tablet allows users to draw on the screen with a pen as if it were a sheet of paper.
