The video below this article could easily have been an April fools joke from a couple of years ago, but in fact this is the new Flexible tablet named PaperTab. It had been revealed during CES 2013, and is a partnership that includes Queen’s University, Plastic Logic, and Intel. This product is much more than a paper-thin tablet PC, which can be seen by watching the video demo below this article.
PaperTab is the worlds first paper tablet PC, and the paper tablets represent apps as physical windows working together to provide a fluid experience. The video below showcases how the PaperTab would work in a simulated environment, and also showcases how you’d type with the on-screen keyboard.
You can pickup one PaperTab, like a PDF app, and touch another PaperTab showing the PDF icons to interact, which then allows you to open the documents and navigate by bending the display. Each time you bend the display you turn a page. An example of how this works is also shown in the video.
The PaperTab makes use of certain bend gestures to perform a range of tasks, and this includes bending the display to fast forward through videos, or reversing the action to rewind. You can place two PaperTab’s together to create a bigger display.
Take a look at this video of the flexible PaperTab tablet, and let us know what you think about the innovative way you interact with PaperTab’s?
