Where are Unbreakable Flexible Plastic Displays?

Posted on 22 March 2009

Late Last year, HP in collaboration with Flexible Display Center (FTC) at Arizona State University, unveiled prototype of flexible plastic display. Every one was impressed and tried to imagine the future of laptops, mobile phones and even television.

These display use very simple manufacturing process and raw materials usage id reduced to 90% of what is used today to make LCD. This makes it cheap for companies and consumers.

flexable display technology

Having broken my laptop screen twice, I am especially interested in unbreakable feature of the product. which is very good for careless users like me. Although I do not intend to beat the crap out of my laptop in near future like the guy in this video but I think It would be cool thing to do on an airport terminal.

Best this about these flexible display is that the picture is sharp and result is colorful. Next generation newspapers will be published on these. This technology has a potential for taking laptop, cell phone technology one step further.

But why this technology has not arrived in market yet? My message to HP is that they should deliver. we are waiting for these flexible displays that use less energy and are unbreakable.
