The Next New Thing

The next new thing that we might see in the future would be a new form of the newspaper. Currently the newspaper is not integrated with the internet which therefore can't be constantly updated. This new version of the newspaper will be integrated with the internet. The new newspaper will not be made out of paper but will be a made out of a new technology called OLED which stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. It will be transparent, waterproof, touch screen, and could be folded just like paper. The news will be constantly updated when there is breaking news. Users will also be able to comment on the articles they read. The newspaper will be charged by the sun and when full will be able to store energy so that when not under the sun will still be able to run. Not all of the content on the device will be accessible to all users unless they subscribe to that content. The price to manufacture will be real low comparable to current newspapers. It is also biodegradable so disposing of the device will not harm the environment. This device will give a much needed boost to the newspaper industry. Every type of media could be used on the device such as television, radio, and you could even video chat.


  1. Wow this is interesting. Using solar energy and the news will be updated constantly. It would be cool if images/pictures in the front page or in any page will be moving like videos (just like in Harry Potter).

  2. I saw something like this on a Microsoft video about the future. I can't wait for such devices to come out. Although I fear I may not be capable of using them efficiently. I still have problems using the current touch screen electronics.

  3. This is something I would totally not mind right now. I would replace my print-sticking-to-hand newspapers for this. This idea is not only green, it also keeps us informed of every new thing as it happens. I am soo looking forward to this!
