Canada invents a laptop computer that can be thinner than paper

According to UPI News, computer scientists at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada, recently invented a paper-thin computer that can be circled into a pocket and is very flexible and portable.

The new computer uses a flexible material that is very thin and only a few millimeters thick. It has all the features of a smart phone, such as storing e-books, playing music, or making phone calls. The display is a 9.5 cm long film. Flexibility makes it easier to carry than any current mobile computer. It can store large amounts of files and can exchange information, which means that offices will no longer need paper or printers.

Roel Vertegaal, director of the human media laboratory at the inventor, said, “All documents can be converted into digital formats and stored on computers. The era of paperless office is coming.” (Casey)
