This time, you will be completely enthralled to know that an Ultra thin paper tablet has been unveiled to revolutionize the future of computing. This is something really great which you cannot miss out at all.
Ultrathin tablets and laptops have now become an old topic and the current trend setter is the paper thin device that looks completely like a paper, but runs like a computer. Isn’t this surprising? Well, check out the image and if you are still confused and don’t trust this image then check out the most appealing video of this ultrathin device at the end of this post. This device is christened as PaperTab tablet.
Basically, it is a fully flexible tablet prototype that looks just like a paper and is designed by Queen’s University researchers named Intel and Plastic Logic. This new design has been unveiled at the most anticipated CES 2013 held in Las Vegas.
Though this tablet looks and feels just like a paper, but it is actually a fully interactive device with flexible plastic on its display. It is a 10.7 inch high resolution E-ink touchscreen. This has been possible due to the plastic transistor technology that has been developed by the Plastic Logic and is actively powered by the second generation Intel Core i5 processor. This makes this device much more enchanting and a refreshing model from all the devices so far has launched.
What beneficial about this device is that instead of using various apps or windows on a single display, you can simply make use of ten or more different interactive displays or as named it as PaperTabs. The director of Queen’s University’s Human Media Lab – Roel Vertegaal said that using several PaperTabs makes it much easier to work with multiple documents. He further added that in five to ten years, most computers right from tablets to ultrathin notebooks will look and feel just like these sheets of printed color paper.
