PaperFold: Foldable Smartphone With Three Displays


The most interesting projects of electronic devices have been introduced lately. Electronic devices we could only dream about before. For example, a modular smartphone Project Ara should be introduced in 2015 by Google.

Also, one of these days information about a project of a “compound: smartphone” with three displays showed up on the Web. The displays – e-Paper, a flexible “electronic paper” by the PaperFold Company. Displays can be enabled or disabled and they can act like a single system and like three independent displays as well. Thanks to this design you can make a mini-notebook with a touch keypad. The displays are set up by a magnetic “clasp” which holds all the displays together. After that the displays automatically define themselves and can work as a single system at once.

At this moment only a prototype of this smartphone is ready and it’s in pre-alpha stage, if you can say so. Hopefully, this project will come to reality – most likely, customers will turn up for such an original device.

    Ropes — Fast Strings

    Most of us work with strings one way or another. There’s no way to avoid them — when writing code, you’re doomed to concatinate strings every day, split them into parts and access certain characters by index. We are used to the fact that strings are fixed-length arrays of characters, which leads to certain limitations when working with them. For instance, we cannot quickly concatenate two strings. To do this, we will at first need to allocate the required amount of memory, and then copy there the data from the concatenated strings.
