PaperFold is a shape-changing smartphone allows users to fold open up to three flexible electrophoretic displays to provide extra screen real estate when needed. Displays are detachable such that users can fold the device into various shapes that can range from an ultra notebook shape to a foldout map.

"In PaperFold, each display tile can act independently or as part of a single system," says Dr. Vertegaal, a professor in the School of Computing and Director of the Human Media Lab at Queen's. "It allows multiple device form factors, providing support for mobile tasks that require large screen real estate or keyboards on demand, while retaining an ultra-compact, ultra-thin and lightweight form factor."

Note that this is a first prototype: e.g., cables would not be present in future versions.
