The real iPad - revolutionary 'paper' screen you can twist and bend unveiled (Video)
The new display is as thin as a piece of paper - and can be twisted and bent without breaking. Experts say it could soon replace everything from tablet to TV screens - and even change the way we work. [link to www.dailymail.co.uk]



PaperTab is a flexible version of the ipad
A revolutionary new tablet screen the thickness of a sheet of paper that can be twisted and dropped without damage has been revealed.
Developed by Queen's University in Canada in collaboration with Plastic Logic and Intel Labs, it could lead to revolutionary new gadgets that are virtually unbreakable - and as thin as a piece of paper.
The firm behind the screen has even shown off a radical new version of the office desk - with sheets of paper instead of screens.

Looks similar to the kindle technology. Which has some interesting advantages over traditional display tech.

HOWEVER, when this becomes cheap enough to have a 50+ inch wall version for a few hundred bux i will be buying.

Be nice to have a big chart i can stick on the wall and put things such as a calender and notes on without actually using paper. Sure i could just use a whiteboard or a projector, but if you can load stuff via external sources its usefulness increases.

Advantages of the e ink tech are that it only uses power when changing something on the display. so you could keep a digital calender on the wall for months without it using power.

Imagine how good colour large format versions would be for artists and designers.

They really have to work on improving the refresh rate on these e ink type devices though.

Imagine if you could roll up like a 50 inch version and then put it in a tube safe...roll it out on a desk at work or school, showing your colleagues, peers, teacher or students something.

If they get the framerate up on these things high enough for true 60fps and develop the right software and battery design we could have 2 or 3mm magnesium/alu laptops that last for a month on a charge that have no physical keys within this decade. Think of those ultrathin laptops these days.

Just a basic metal framed clamshell design. one screen acting as an interface and the other acting as a display.

Maybe you could link two of them if you have two of them stand it sideways and have 2x displays and two input interfaces.

Back in 2009/10 laptops were already getting pretty thin anyway.



One problem i can foresee is ports, laptops will be thinner than the ports, i guess they will have to design some kind of wireless box/ port interface.

Like a little cigarette box size thing that connects wirelessly and you plug your stuff such as CD drives into that.

Imagine if they can make rolls of the stuff for a few hundred dollars and you can layer it.

Might be able to cover a wall in digital wallpaper.

How cool would an office be in the middle of a jungle or in your favorite soccer stadiums vip box.

The limit is basically cost.

It looks as though power supply is going to be an issue.

They would have to rid themselves of all cords; which, speaks to the other users power issue as well.
Neat idea, but definitely at its inception.

Like all new "trendy" technology, they keep trying to get rid of buttons in place of doing retarded gestures and bending and flipping and moving the device... Why? I want buttons, not dog earing the device so that it glitches and doesn't do what I want xD

I'll rather wait some years until there really are useble tablets. This seems nice but is not practical because you will need a whole package of these things to use them. (or at least more then 1, with current markets will cost about the same as an ipad so NO..
