The sheet tablet

Newspapers and magazines are foldable. Why not tablets? Well, one very good reason is that they contain various nonbendy components such as processors, memory chips, and batteries. But ongoing innovations in nanotechnology, including nanowires made of copper, could lead to flexible newsreaders similar to Innovation+Bermer Labs' futuristic NewSSlate prototype, which unfolds like a sheet of paper. Combine that effort with research into using DNA strands to construct processors, as well a Stanford University nanotech project to build bendable batteries out of paper, and suddenly the foldable tablet doesn't seem so far-fetched.
