If I had pitched you an idea for touch screen which would revolutionize the whole world back in 1999, had you believed it? I know you wouldn’t believe it. We got something like that now. The future is with us. Not sixth sense and not gesture based controls but something different, something thin and something flexible.
Your phone could be as flexible as you want it to be. Right now it is a prototype which costs $7000 but by the time we are ready to buy it, $100 looks more like it. Arizona university researchers have come up with a paper phone which is a touch screen phone and works like a touch screen phone. It is ultra thin, looks more like a ration card and less like a phone. In addition to the touch input the phone will take inputs while you bend. The phone looks rugged and looks ideal for some tough handling.
Paper phone uses 9.5 cm flexible film eInk display which has copper wires clung on back of it. It can make calls, play music and store books. Watch the video :
In a world which is racing to get a bigger screen, heavier phone and a faster processor, paper phone which can bend it like Beckham comes as a breather.
