It is amazing to see the form factor, dimension and capability of latest digital screen that Sony produced and reveal to public just recently:
It is so magical.
People say that this "foldable screen" is made of organic plasma, which is being encapsulated in foldable plastic film. By design it is extremely "paper thin"! People can fold it and carry it around very lightly.
Here's a video that shows that:
Imagine what would happen if one day this "foldable screen" also become so "affordable" in price, and so "connectable" to the internet.
- More and more people would eventually more prefer to carry this "foldable digital paper" around, instead of carrying physical paper anymore, because this digital paper can stream and browse information direct from the net.
- We no longer need to carry "stack of paper", because everything is now available from the internet's digital realm.
- Our computer would become thinner and more flexible, and we can fold this "computer" to make it easy to carry around. Then we can "unfold it" quickly when we want to start work at anytime.
- Eventually we might be able to "write" on top of this "digital paper" computer, and send the result to the net to be stored and saved. We no longer need to carry our today's "thicker, luggable notebook computer" around anymore, because eventually our "digital paper" has become the "computer".
Imagine how a great amazing future it would be!
Through this "digital paper", everything that we want to do suddenly probably could be done more intuitively, more ergonomically, more flexible, powerful and easy than we could done it before.
Everything back become "as easy as paper" once more. The difference is that we are all now doing it "all again" through the new "digital realm" that is made possible by this cute little powerful "magical paper".
