PaperPhone, paper-thin phone

/ On : 7:39 AM/
ShoutBloger: Vancouver Convention Centre, Canada, since last Monday until yesterday crowded by information and communication technology community. In places it lasted Conference Computer Human Interaction (CHI) to-29.

One of the panel that held the Association of Computing Machinery's CHI is a presentation about PaperPhone. The combined team of researchers from Queen's University in Kingston, Canada, and Arizona State University in the United States together with researchers from E-Ink Corporation, presented the findings.

PaperPhone is a unique mobile phone prototypes made of electronic paper. Like the phone in general, this gadget can also make calls, play music, and display e-book applications.

This is the future, said Roel Vertegaal, Director of the Human Media Laboratory at Queen's University. One of the inventors of this technology would explain that PaperPhone slid to the market in five years.

In a grand celebration of Canada that, Vertegaal, Nicholas Colaneri (University of Arizona), and Jann Kaminski demonstrate a cell phone prototype called Snaplet. They bend-bend the phone and write on it or drives like touch screen devices. So flexible, this gadget dubbed the "iPhone flexible".

According Vertegaal, the device looks, feels, and operates like a small sheet of paper interactive. Gazette electronic paper uses E-Ink technology, such as the Amazon Kindle electronic reading device. Thick sheet is only a matter of millimeters.

The researchers predict this technology as the end of the use of paper or printer. Paperless office is here, said Vertegaal. Everything can be stored digitally and put this computer on top of each other, like a paper composition.

Actually, PaperPhone nervous system has been developed by Byron Lahey, a doctoral student at Arizona State University, and Winslow Burleson, assistant professor of The School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at the same college.

According to Burleson, it uses a real-time sensor inputs and dynamic modeling. Movement and indentation on the sheet that allows the interaction on the PaperPhone screen. This guided him to show maps, contact lists, or music player. This practice, he said, exactly the same as when we read the book by moving sheets of pages per page.
