Thinfilm phones could make current smartphones obsolete in 5 to 10 yrs

The worlds first interactive paper computer is set to revolutionize the world of interactive computing.
 
Its creator, Roel Vertegaal, director of Queens University Human Media Lab, predicts that thinfilm phones will make current smartphones obsolete in 5 to 10 years.

"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," he said.
 
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.
 
Being able to store and interact with documents on larger versions of these light, flexible computers means offices will no longer require paper or printers.
 
"The paperless office is here. Everything can be stored digitally and you can place these computers on top of each other just like a stack of paper, or throw them around the desk," continued Dr. Vertegaal.
 
The invention heralds a new generation of computers that are super lightweight, thin-film and flexible. They use no power when nobody is interacting with them. When users are reading, they dont feel like theyre holding a sheet of glass or metal.
 
The development team also included researchers from Arizona State University (ASU), ASUs Flexible Display Center, and and E Ink Corporation.
