DrasPhone – A Foldable Smartphone

R&D Core Limited has first introduced the concept for a foldable phone called Drasphone, which is a touchscreen Smartphone that you could fold up. The h innovate flexible touchscreen interface can be folded to a mini-phone that allows the user to check message, time, and other notification. The prime feature is its flexible display and four-part body connected by the display and three articulated hinges. DRAS stands for “Digital Resistive Area Sensing” that surpasses difficulties and limitations of capacitive touch screens.

The main advantages of Dras include the following

  • The sensor is put behind the flexible display
  • Multi-Touch
  • Truly flexible and rollable
  • Finger force sensing
  • No calibration required
  • Extremely thin
  • Consumes little power

The touchscreen is fully collapsible- fully unfolded mode is termed as Micro Dras and partially folded to become Mini-Dras. In Micro-Dras mode, there is a small section of the display which allows you to have all your notification and relevant data.

Power consumption is very low in Drasphone and hence the users can carry it anywhere without fear of running out of battery. The creators claim that the material used has been tested many times and it won’t get damaged very easily as the material used to build the phone has high elasticity. However, there are a number of complications that make it difficult for these devices to cross into reality. Batteries, processors, sensors, cameras, and all the other components that drive our high-tech electronics would need to be flexible as well. The designers and R&d Core Ltd has made an impact in the IT world by creating this innovative technology.
