Researchers from the E Ink corporation teamed with two universities to create this flexible phone made from electronic papers. Users control the phone by bending it, writing on it, or using its touch screen.

The paper phone uses the same E Ink technology as Amazon's Kindle e-reader. It can be used to read e-books and listen to music as well as make phone calls.

One researcher says everything is going to look and feel like this within five years.
