Paperfold a foldable, transformable smartphone prototype

If Kyrocera's folding smartphone Echo did not have enough screens for you, try this on for size. The Human Media science lab at Canada's Queen's University has created a completely purposeful smartphone that uses not 2, but 3 completely different snap-together e-ink displays. The result's a huge device referred to as PaperFold, that may do some pretty awful stuff, particularly with maps. you'll show driving directions over all of the screens for simple designing, or fold the displays along to make a Google Earth globe of types. The phone will even be wont to print a model of your workplace. simply connect the panels along into a building-like form, and send the specs on to your native 3D printer. a fairly cool trick if you raise us.

The inspiration for the project came from, you guessed it, paper. The lab's director, Dr. Roel Vertegaal, says "the development of electronic paper computers that may adopt similar qualities to paper has been an everlasting analysis goal" for his team. It's an aspiration that is not unique to just this project. In 2010 Microsoft was performing on (and then killed) a book-like tablet called traveller, and Sony released a high-dollar digital paper tablet earlier this year. while there aren't any plans to bring PaperFold to market simply yet, it shows us what could be possible with digital displays and e-ink technology. wish to require a look for yourself? check out the video below for a glance at the prototype in action.
