The Human Media Lab over at the Queen’s University in Canada have come up with something big, or in this case, light and eco-friendly that should shake the mobile phone world. Called the E-Ink smartphone, this is considered as a paper computer which carries the usual features that include making calls, storing e-books and playing media.
It comes in the shape of a purse and has a 9.5 cm thin flexible film. Underneath it, a flexible printed circuit incorporating resistive bend sensors allow it to be programmed to recognize different types of bending gestures. It can even function as a tablet since it also boasts of a built-in Wacom tablet that allows users to draw on screen.
