paper computer


Paper paper everywhere 2

[An earlier version of this blog post was written on my phone in a rush and contained many mistakes. The number of mistakes has hopefully gone done after revision. See revised blog post below.]

After the paper computer1 and the paper watch there’s now a paper phone.

The idea of using paper instead of technology isn’t really new to stationery enthusiasts: This time it is Google’s turn to feature the idea of replacing tech with paper and this has been reported by many newspapers and news websites.

The paper phone kind of reminds me of IBM’s ‘Think Pad’.

  1. I used to use this paper computer with my students for a few years, but stopped using it because I wasn’t able to get a clear answer regarding copyright issues from the people who created it. []
