Paper This from the


Paper

This from the new WiReD… like the way it frames the use of paper as a
medium that people understand that can be extended. Seen three separate
presentations/articles about 3g ‘smart pens’ in the last couple of

“This is the most advanced digital
input screen ever developed,” he declares. “It has very high
resolution, perfect contrast, and costs a fraction of a cent to
produce. Any graphical interface can be printed on it, and you get
years of full-time education, paid for by the government, to learn how
to use it. It will not be beaten in our lifetime.”

He puts the paper in my hands. “And I can give it to
you, because I have hundreds more,” he offers, gesturing toward a stack
of blank paper on his desk. Fåhraeus isn’t handing me a sketch of the
input screen. The paper is the screen.
