DPT-RP1 / Digital paper


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The DPT-RP1 infuses the best features of paper into a cutting-edge technology. It can display A4-size documents in actual size with renderings that are clear and easy on the eyes. The developers have also replicated the sensation of the pen tip meeting the page. The base surface provides support when users hold the device for a long time in either portrait or landscape mode. The paper-like finish enhances in-hand comfort and reflects the lightness of the product (around 349g). With built-in storage for approx. 10,000 documents and connectivity with other devices and networks, it offers the efficiency of paperless work to professors and lawyers.

Nearly identical to real paper, this digital paper has an excellent surface feel. A super lightweight product, the selection of materials is excellent for such a high-tech device.
