Paper computers




'paperphone', a fully functional smartphone featuring a bendable paper screen
a team of researchers at the human multimedia lab at queen's university in canada have created two fully functional
paper computing devices, 'paperphone' and 'snaplet' wrist computer, controlled by bending their screens.
capable of use as a phone, music player, book reader, and navigator, the 'paperphone' prototype is composed
of a 3.7-inch flexible electrophoretic display, underlain with a layer of 2-inch long bidirectional bend sensors.
an arduino microcontroller obtains data from the sensors, and the information is processed by a laptop.
'paperphone' is controlled gesturally, through bending and pinching the screen. 'initially we thought, bending is cool [just]
because it hasn't been done before,' admits roel vertegaal, director of queen's human media lab. 'but then when we started
using it, it turns out to be quite efficient. it's quite a good way of navigating a computer.'

Charge your mobile by Spining

A close cousin of the Mechanical Mobile, the revOlve cellphone loves to spin. A notch up as far as physical design goes, the main differentiating factor are the detachable components that can be upgraded and recycled when necessary. I love the sleek holster and the way you can buckle the phone to your waist loop. Let’s spin and wait for the magical mechanics to take over!
