"Here’s a piece of tech that you should keep an eye on. It’s a stunning innovation that combines some of the best features of your favorite tablets and e-readers into one screen. Yes, a screen.
"PaperTab is still in development (as you can see in the above video) but has me pretty excited as I imagine it could be a cost-effective way to bring less-distracting technology into the classroom. So why is it so exciting? Because PaperTab is a flexible touch-screen enabled e-ink screen (similar to the Kindle, but flexible) that is location-aware. By that I mean you can place it on a desk and it’ll know when other PaperTabs are nearby. Like you see in those Samsung commercials, you can even ‘zap’ screens onto other screens by just being near it. Check out the video to see it in action."
