LG Philips shows off bendy screen
They call it e-paper, but in reality it is probably neither one nor the other. But whatever it is called, it is most defiantly a next generation display screen. Being flexible it means that there are so many more possibilities for this to be introduced into, something like this if it works as good as they say it will, we can expect to see new ideas for computing and communications.
The brilliant people in the labs of LG Philips in South Korea have been working on this for some time, in fact the concept is not entirely new, we have seen various other electrical manufacturers come up with the same idea, but not on this scale. The LG Philips version is a mere 0.3 mm thick and is just under 40 cm’s from the top corner to the bottom, which puts it right into the laptop market.
The questions that need answering is what sort of resolution can we expect, they say that it will display just under 4100 colors. However it is still early days on this and no doubt we will be seeing many others pop up before we ever actually see any practical use of one, there are no immediate plans to put this into production or any mention of what product this is going to be integrated into.
