In Brief

The PaperFold has multiple electronic ink displays that can be combined into various shapes to support different functions.

Developed by Human Media Lab at Queen’s University in Canada, the PaperFold is a shape-changing smartphone that lets users fold open multiple electronic ink displays to create more screens as needed.

As the name implies, the PaperFold was inspired by paper and the phone’s multiple displays can be folded together, detached or attached as required. They can act independently or as part of a single larger system. Users can fold the smartphone into different configurations like a tablet, an ultra notebook, or even a fold-out map.
