• Extremely slim and flexible PaperPhone uses thin-film technology


  • Chunky smartphones could pretty much turn obsolete if concepts like these ever see the light of the day. Called the PaperPhone and aptly so, this communication device is designed to make the best use of bendable technology. Created by the researchers at Queens University’s Human Media Lab, this flexible thin-film phone works by bending the device in different ways, each fulfilling a certain command. Bending the corners turns pages while squeezing the phone makes a call. Sporting a 3.7″ diagonal thin-film flexible E Ink display, this concept smartphone showed up at the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems and has left us day-dreaming of the future of technology.
