Created by artist Aaron Jones, YoutubeTheater is a guerrilla theater where users can run videos from a smartphone onto a large screen. Smartphones can dock into the theater that takes advantage of public accessibility of wireless networks to project media from the phone onto a large screen. The theater is planned at the site of a garage in Detroit, where the existing wall will be used as a projection surface.

PaperPhone is a paper thin smartphone


The super thin and super light PaperPhone has about the same thickness as a sheet of paper, but it also has the capabilities you expect from a smartphone. Display for the phone is a flexible e-ink, and users can interact with it by bending the device, flipping corners, or writing on it with a stylus. The prototype phone has memory storage, audio playback, texting, and can make phone calls. And you’ve probably noticed that it does not have a camera or a color display. PaperPhone is the invention of Roel Vertegaal, the director of Queen’s University Human Media Lab in Kingston, Ontario.
