Tablet As Flexible As Paper Debuts at Consumer Electronics Show

Welcome to the future


Here's one exciting consumer gadget at CES 2013 that isn't a television: The PaperTab, which looks and feels just like a sheet of paper, may one today overtake today's tablets.

Developed by researchers at the Human Media Lab at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada, the PaperTab features a flexible, high-resolution 10.7-inch plastic touchscreen display built by Plastic Logic, the company borne from Cambridge University's Cavendish Laboratory, and relies on a second-generation Intel Core i5 processor to turn what looks like a sheet of white paper into a living, interactive display.
