PaperWindows: The First Foldable, Hi-Res Paper Computer

May 31st, 2008

Designed by David Holman and Roel Vertegaal at the Human Media Lab in Canada, PaperWindows was the world’s first foldable paper computer. PaperWindows simulates hi-res, full-color e-ink display through projection. Shape is tracked using a Vicon computer vision system, and projections of real computer windows are corrected for the shape of the paper before being projected back. The experience is one of true electronic paper. Folding, bending and earmarking can be used to page down and otherwise navigate documents. [Paper Link]
