If you have watched Harry Potter, then like I do, you must be fascinated by the interactive video newspaper in most chapters. It's no longer a science fiction, flexible tablet may soon become a reality.
Tablets are getting thinner and thinner, and the end result is bound to be tablets that are paper thin. Well, we're almost there, it's a just a question of exactly how handy that'll really be.
Plastic Logic's "Paper Tab"—developed in partnership with Intel and Queen's University in Ontario, Canada, the displays look pretty much like sheets of paper. Actually, though, they're 10.7-inch plastic displays which are flexible and touch sensitive. The displays may be paper thin--well, cardstock thin, for now—but we're only talking about the displays; each prototype still needs to be tethered to a CPU with a chain of tables because the rest of the components, like the processor and battery are still unfortunately rigid. For the time being anyway.
Each display houses a different app, and the screens can interact with each other: tap one page on another to open a document or email, say, and then flick or twist to provide commands. The displays also know where others are, so they can be teamed up to produce a larger screen when placed next to each other.
