Flexible E-Paper Finally Coming Out!

Flexible e-paper displays are finally going to hit the market! I'm so excited; I've been reporting on flexible e-paper displays for the last six years.


(Flexible epaper from LG)

LG's malleable plastic display sports a resolution of 1024 x 768 and can bend at an angle of up to 40 degrees. At just 0.7 millimeters thick, it's about one-third thinner than similarly-specced glass displays, and weighs in at 14 grams -- about half the weight of its glassy competition.

Supposedly, these amazing displays will be coming out as products in a matter of months!

Although these displays are small in size, they certainly meet the standards set by the e-paper newspapers from Spielberg's 2002 Minority Report movie and the mediatrons from Neal Stephenson's 1995 novel The Diamond Age.
