VIDEO: The Flexible PaperPhone

Researchers from Queen's University in Ontario have developed a working model of what they are calling the PaperPhone. This flexible phone has a flexible eInk display that reacts with 'bend' gestures... although still in the researching phase, this concept may be a glimpse of what the future may hold for flexible displays. (see demo video below)
Using a ductile e-ink display and elastic electronic underpinnings, they created a device called the PaperPhone that literally bends to its user's will. Curling the corners of the device isn't just for show, either, as folding the phone is how users navigate menus and make calls.
