Mexico City.- It seems that everything is said in the competitive market of the tablet. This suggests at least the relative stagnation of the sector in recent years. But someone has just created a new device that can make history: the MagicScroll.
This prototype that goes halfway between a smartphone, a tablet and a papyrus of antiquity; is a device developed by the Human Media Lab of Queen & # 39; s University.
We are inspired by the design of old roles because their form allows a more natural and uninterrupted experience of long visual timelines. Our hope is to design the device so that it can be rolled up to something as small as a ballpoint pen that you can wear in your breast pocket. More generally, the MagicScroll project also allows us to investigate the notions that screens do not have to be flat & # 39; and everything else can be a screen & # 39 ;.
These are the words of Roel Vertegaal, professor of human-computer interaction and director of the laboratory, in charge of this remarkable project.
With a 7.5-inch touch screen in 2K resolution it can be displayed to display all information; the MagicScroll works like a tablet of the future.
Their functions, although relatively limited, are actually ambitious. Since not only information about the lake of all its specifications is displayed; You can also make calls with this.
