Plastic Logic has unveiled  PaperTab, a flexible tablet computer that bends like a sheet of  paper.

The wafer-thin 10.7-inch touchscreen device was developed in  conjunction with Intel and Queen’s University and is powered by the chip-maker’s  Core i5 processor.

PaperTabs are designed to be used in numbers, with one for each app in use,  rather than having multiple tabs open on a single device. Documents can be  shared between PaperTabs over a wireless network or by touching them  together.

“Using several PaperTabs makes it much easier to work with  multiple documents,” said RoelVertegaal, Director of Queen’s University’s Human  Media Lab.

“Within five to ten years, most computers, from  ultra-notebooks to tablets, will look and feel just like these sheets of printed  colour paper.”

Commands are carried out on PaperTab through bend and swipe gestures, and  multiple devices can be placed in close proximity to create a larger display  area.

“Plastic Logic’s flexible plastic displays are completely  transformational in terms of product interaction,” said Plastic Logic CEO Indro  Mukerjee.

“They allow a natural human interaction with electronic paper,  being lighter, thinner and more robust compared with today’s standard  glass-based displays. This is just one example of innovative revolutionary  design approaches enabled by flexible displays.”
