You know what the problem with current smartphones are? They're not easy enough to lose. Enter the PaperPhone, a paper-thin smartphone capable of doing everything your current phone can except have a color screen/take high-res photos/not accidentally get thrown away like a hamburger wrapper.
Inventor Roel Vertegaal, the director of Queen's University Human Media Lab in Kingston, Ontario, said: 'This is the future. Everything is going to look and feel like this within five years.
'This computer looks, feels and operates like a small sheet of interactive paper, meaning that when users are reading they don't feel like they are holding a sheet of glass or metal.
'You interact with it by bending it into a cell phone, flipping the corner to turn pages, or writing on it with a pen.'
What do you mean "everything is going to look and feel like this within five years"?!?! I don't want that! The day boobs start feeling like the pages of a book is the day I don't want to live anymore. I can see it now:
Ladyfriend: *seductively* Like what you feel?
Me: I'm...not sure.
Ladyfriend: *dressing* That's it -- we're through!
Me: ...was that a nipple or The Great Gatsby?
Hit the jump for one more shot and a short video demo of the prototype in action.
