We’re always interested in different forms of electronic manufacture and this week flexible displays caught our eye.
LG revealed that they are now moving ahead with mass production of flexible plastic e-paper displays. The device measures 6inches and features a 1024 x 768 display, weighing in at just 14g. One of the biggest drawbacks though is that the screen is monochrome.
So what are LG hoping to achieve with this flexible black and white device? Well they hope it will help to further improve and popularise the electronic-book market with a lighter and thinner alternative to large E-readers such as the Kindle and Kobo. Whether this flexible technology will take off is yet to be seen but if the technology develops to point when you can simply roll up a digital display and place it in your pocket then it will be very useful to many people.
