"PaperFold cal automatically adjusts the function of its three detachable viewports to give you a 3D view of any street or building."
Toronto, May 5 - How about reading news on a smart phone that can be folded like a map with a flexible, portable and interactive display technology!

You are not asking for too much as researchers at Queen's University in Canada have turned your dream into a reality - in 'PaperFold' mobile device.

Named multi-display shape-changing smartphone, the 'PaperFold' mobile device uses three flexible electrophoretic - display sheets that users can fold into various configurations.

It allows for mobile tasks that require large screen real estate or keyboards on demand, while retaining an ultra-compact, ultra-thin and lightweight form factor, explained Roel Vertegaal, director of Human Media Lab at Queen's University.

When you need more digital inputs, you can pull out the additional screens like a foldout map.

PaperFold cal automatically adjusts the function of its three detachable viewports to give you a 3D view of any street or building.

Fold two screens into a mini-laptop shape, for instance, and the bottom portion turns into a touchscreen keyboard, Vertegaal was quoted as saying in media reports.
