You interact with it by bending it into a cell phone, flipping the corner to turn pages, or writing on it with a pen." The smartphone prototype, called Paper Phone is best described as a flexible i Phone -- it does everything a smartphone does, like store books, play music or make phone calls.
But its display consists of a 9.5 cm diagonal thin film flexible E Ink display.
An article on a study of interactive use of bending with flexible thinfilm computers is to be published at the conference in Vancouver, where the group is also demonstrating a thinfilm wristband computer called Snaplet.

Capturing interactive hand poses in real time and with realistic results is a well-examined problem in computing, particularly human-centered computing and motion capture technology. A new sonar technology developed by computer scientists and electrical engineers allows you to interact with mobile devices and smartwatch screens by writing or gesturing on any nearby surface -- a ...
The researchers found the following: Thirty-five of the 99 initially identified studies could not be included in the meta-analysis. Laitsch is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada, and is coeditor of the International Journal for Education Policy and Leadership.
Because they did focus on the effect of word processors on student writing, however, they were analyzed qualitatively.
There may be other, less costly interventions available to improve student writing.
Additionally, although some of the studies that were analyzed qualitatively found that students using word processors were more willing to make changes in their writing, those changes did not necessarily rise to the level of “revision”—entailing, instead, altering word choice or making other simple edits, for example. The effect of computers on student writing: A meta-analysis of studies from 1992 to 2002.
This study, however, looks at the body of literature related to the effect of computers used specifically for word processing on student writing. Retrieved February 28, 2003, from is a collection of systematic techniques for resolving apparent contradictions in research findings.
Previous studies have found positive correlations between computer use and the length and quality of writing, but mixed results when looking at the effect of computer use on revision within the writing process (prewrite-draft-revise-edit-publish).

Meta-analysts translate results from different studies to a common metric and statistically explore relations between study characteristics and findings (from Meta-Analysis in Educational Research, ERIC Digest (
