The World’s Thinnest Smartphone

The Human Media Lab from Queen’s University in Canada has created a smartphone unlike any other. It can do anything your iPhone or Droid can do except it’s thinner and more flexible than a credit card.

A user can interact with the PaperPhone by, “Bending it into a cellphone, or writing on it with a pen,” says creator Roel Vertegaal. The display is 9.5cm from corner to corner and has several sensors to recognize bending actions.

This is a pretty sweet little gadget. I do however question it’s durability and functionality since it’s Canadian (sorry Canada).
