It’s time to get excited about flexible screens

Quote:
Tablet and smartphone touchscreens might seem advanced, but displays have even further to go. While we’ve been stubbing our fingers on glass, scientists have been cooking up the tech needed to make ‘flex-to-zoom’ a reality, with the billions now being pumped into graphene research a major catalyst. But why would you need a fold-up iPad? And how long before we’re reading paper-thin digital rags on the train?

Ver-r-r-r-r-y interesting. Hopefully flexible circuitry will develop before 2020.

Hi there
I'd rather the effort were to be spent on Holographic (or even standard) projection where you don't actually need physical screens at all (except in a portable environment).

Reducing weight on a laptop type of PC is always a good idea --in any case the projection process could be still used in a PC --the screen would be perhaps a light white ceramic piece of plastic.

Also I would be talking about DECENT projection systems not the current bulky things you often see in meeting rooms --technology still has ways to go before we reach that capability.

What I like about projection systems is that you aren't restricted to specific screen sizes either.

Cheers

trouble with projectors has always been daylight.

Cool. I wonder how they plan to make a bendable screen also touchscreen, but this is the stuff of the future.

Also, the first step in mobile devices that can survive a fall. Truly amazing.

If this is an actual circuit, They are doing amazing stuff in that field too.

The main issue of projectors is that they need a screen (be it an actual screen or something in the air, because you know, the air by itself is transparent to light so it can't reflect it).

The most close to fictional holographics in realistic display technology is something like Google Glasses, but instead of a crappy tiny LCD screen they will use retinal projectors, that is they will project the image inside your own eyes. This allows to get full-field-of-vision screens without doing stupid stuff like glasses with curved displays.
Retinal displays do exist nowadays, but are a very very young technology.

how many times can you bend it what resolution can you achieve, and will it work touch-screen. I bet those 3 things are a wee way off.

All stuff I've seen is just projecting a keyboard somewhere with laser. This device. It's real and it works.

I've seen only 3D renderings like this, which would be picoprojector technology and not holo (as you would need a surface) and seems like some people thought it was real. (as it's indeed clever CGI on top of a real video)
