"It wasn't until I was past forty that it bacame clear that I was going to be quote, successful, unquote."
- Isaac Asimov

Flexible Wall Sheet Display  
  A large clear sheet that displays information.  

This seems to be the basic idea for a very large OLED or other clear plastic display.

Against one wall a wide sheet of clear material suddenly flared with light and swirling colour. It steadied and a woman stared from the screen. A woman with long dark hair and eyes that were like twin pools of midnight beneath her heavy brows. She wore a dress of some shining black material and her full lips were red against the whiteness of her skin. Curt stared at her, savouring her remarkable beauty, and was barely conscious of the hush which settled over the restaurant.

"An important announcement from the Matriarch ... That is all."

Her image shifted and dissolved in a writhing mass of colour...

From The Mechanical Monarch, by E.C. Tubb.
