Researchers reveal radical scroll screen

Researchers

Scientists have created what they call the ‘world’s first rollable tablet PC.’
Dubbed the ‘MagicScroll,’ it is a flexible touchscreen that rotates around 3D-printed cylindrical body, or can be popped out to become a flat display.
The working prototype was developed by a group of researchers from the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University in Canada.
MagicScroll, which is meant to resemble the form of an ancient scroll, wraps around a cylinder and rolls out to become a ‘full-fledged tablet PC,’ that measures 7.5 inches. It’s also reminiscent of an old-fashioned rolodex, as the device is fitted with two rotary wheels – one on each end – that allow users to scroll through contacts on the digital display with a turn of the wheel.
