Flexible phone made from electronic paper to debut
A prototype flexible smartphone made of electronic paper has been created by Canadian researchers.
The PaperPhone can do all the things bulkier smartphones can do such as make and take calls, send messages, play music or display e-books.
The gadget triggers different functions and features when bent, folded and flexed at its corners or sides.
The Wii, once the cutting edge of video game technology, is headed the way of the Atari 2600 and the Sega Genesis.
Nintendo Co. Ltd. said Monday that it plans to replace the Wii with a new system in 2012. The video game maker said it will "show a playable model of the new system" at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles from June 7 to 9.
With the Nintendo 3DS, the Japanese video game company is betting that it can once again nudge mass entertainment in a new direction, just as it did nearly five years ago when it launched the Wii with its innovative motion-based controller.
This time, though, the competition from other devices is tougher.
