Paper Tablet

This new innovation looks like a piece of paper, however, the ultra thin device is a prototype for a high-res display that has many possible uses. “The team behind the invention said their goal as to emulate the feel of paper – creating a robust, lightweight product that could bend and even be dropped on a desk”.

Peter Firth said that “with PaperTab, the whole idea is that screens should not be breakable,’ said Firth. ‘They should essentially be like pieces of paper. You can drop them on the floor, they can float down, you can move them around and bend them. I would say that in two years we will be able to buy flexible interfaces”.
