A plastic touch-screen powered by an Intel Core i5 Processor, instead of using several apps or windows on a single display, the paper computer features 10 or more interactive displays or PaperTabs. But it may be a few more years before you’ll get your hands on one.
“Since this is a research prototype it is difficult to predict when. it would be in the hands of consumers, but likely within 3-5 years,” Roel Vertegaal, director of Queen’s University’s Human Media Lab, tells QMI Agency.
Once released, you may be able to buy each PaperTab for less than $100.
The PaperTab is fully interactive with a flexible, high-resolution 10.7-inch plastic display developed by Plastic Logic, a flexible touchscreen, and powered by the second generation Intel CoreTM i5 Processor , the ‘Daily Mail’ reported. “Plastic Logic’s flexible plastic displays allow a natural human interaction with electronic paper, being lighter, thinner and more robust compared with today’s standard glassbased displays,” said Indro Mukerjee , CEO of Plastic Logic. Researchers plan to launch the screen at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
