Paper computer shows flexible future for smartphones and tablets

PaperPhone is the world's first nextgen, thin film smartphone and interactive paper computer. It is based on a 3.7" flexible electrophoretic (E Ink) display that does not consume electricity when it is not refreshed. Thinfilm sensors allow the phone to respond to bending of the screen to navigate pages in ebooks, play or pause mp3s, make phone calls, or navigate apps. A flexible wacom tablet allows users to draw on the screen with a pen as if it were a sheet of paper.

would rather touch an icon than awkwardly bend a screen that doesn’t have
nearly close to the same target resolution as touching it does … might
still be cool to have flexible displays so they don’t break tho

bending is cool… but i would like the function of it like a touch screen
tablet instead of a bendable calculator.

Stupid idea. It’s still easy to use the finger touch than bending the whole

the biggest issue i see with this is butt-dialing. if flexing it is an
input method than its as prone to butt-dialing as those phone just before
the flip-phone. if put into a pocket or purse than it would be touched by
other objects or bent around by normal movement and that would most likely
cause activity. the best way to prevent problems of this type would be to
make sure it’s hard enough to unlock that just being bent and bumped into
won’t unlock it.

No one is going to want to bend this fucking thing 10 god damn times or
even 2 to dial a phone number. Great concept but with very minimal

This, sadly will never become a reality, at least in my lifetime. This is
because smartphones need batteries, and though you could make circuit
boards out of paper, you can’t make bendable batteries.

Nick Martin - posted on May 28, 2016 11:11 am

actually you can make flexible batteries, all you need is a container that
wont leak and some contacts.

DerpMans Derpyskin - posted on May 28, 2016 11:37 am

+Nick Martin Thats the hard part. A container that won’t leak. It needs to
hold acid. Either way nobody is going to spend the money to make it,
because why would anyone want a bendable phone?

Nick Martin - posted on May 28, 2016 12:03 pm

yeah, fragility would be a huge deal buster in that regard.
what do you think of removing the battery entirely? as in relying solely on
external batteries/packs etc. then again that has its own cons…
what I like most about the idea though is how it can be applied to other
fields, imagine a waterproof electronic map that you can roll up and stuff
in your bag while hiking?
there’s always a niche.

Nick Martin - posted on May 28, 2016 12:08 pm

almost forgot to mention why i’d love a bendable phone in the first place.
rigid things tend to snap and break when you apply excessive force.
a flexible phone might be a lot more resistant to blunt trauma if designed
although i can easily imagine someone accidentally cutting a phone like
thisnin half while cooking….a hybrid design might be best.
