No, its not a myth. It is a reality. It's flexible, it can be twisted, it can be folded. But, still it is called a PHONE. Doesn't that sound crazy? Queens university human lab came up with this innovative concept. Eventually, this could be the most durable electronic device ever made.
Using electronic paper, simply bend corners to call, play music, text and so on.

This phone uses electronic ink technology, similar to what is used in e-readers. Specific actions on this paper phone are taken as specific instructions, corresponding operation is executed.
But, i wonder if this phone would throw any challenge to the existing smart phones. We are more used to touch screen to text or call or do something, rather than flexing our phone to certain operations. It would take time to penetrate into the markets and gain user base.
