Reflex Smartphone

Queen’s University’s Human Media Lab have created ReFlex, the world’s first full-color, high-resolution and wireless flexible smartphone to combine multi-touch technology, with bend input. Users are able to experience physical tactile feedback when interacting with their apps through bend gestures. “When this smartphone is bent down on the right, pages flip through the fingers from right to left, just like they would in a book. More extreme bends speed up the page flips. Users can feel the sensation of the page moving through their fingertips via a detailed vibration of the phone. This allows eyes-free navigation, making it easier for users to keep track of where they are in a document. This represents a completely new way of physical interaction with flexible smartphones,” said Roel Vertegaal (School of Computing), director of the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University.
