Intel Core i5 launches ‘PaperTab’

10th January 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, January 09, 2013: Intel, has come up with a tablet called ‘PaperTab’ that is as thin as a piece of paper. PaperTab can be used either like a tablet or an e-book, with users just bending the paper-thin, flexible plastic screen to change the display. The device was recently shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), featuring a fully interactive 27.2-cm (10.7″) plastic touchscreen display.

PaperTab is powered by a second-gen Intel Core i5 processor. Its designers claim that the device aims to replace the need for paper.

Ryan Brotman, Research Scientist at Intel, said, “Plastic Logic’s flexible plastic displays are completely transformational in terms of product interaction. They allow a natural human interaction with electronic paper, being lighter, thinner and more robust compared with today’s standard glass-based displays.”

Roel Vertegaal, The Director of Queen’s University’s Human Media Lab, said, “Using several Papertabs makes it much easier to work with multiple documents.”

“Within five to 10 years, most computers, from notebooks to tablets, will look and feel just like these sheets of printed colour paper,” Vertegaal added.

The prototype does not feature several apps or windows on a single display. Instead, it provides users with 10 or more interactive displays (or paper tabs), one for every app in use.
