The Future of Smartphones: Made out of Paper?

Posted on: May 16, 2011

We love our iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Windows smartphones because they can do so much for us on a daily basis. The hand-size portability and easy access to the apps, videos, cameras, music players, ebook readers and more are what makes these smartphones so value. With technology changing at a record-breaking pace, the smartphones we use today could look very different five years from now. One research group, Human Media Lab, is banking on it big time and is working on introducing a smartphone that is paper-thin and flexible like a credit card. This new device uses E Ink technology which is electronic ink that becomes animated when touched or activated on a flat paper surface.

Here’s a video of the behind the scenes look at the future of smartphone technology… enjoy!


Would you buy a paper-thin smartphone if it was available today? Let’s hear your feedback.
