In Part II of our showcase of flat screen technology innovation, we focus on efforts at Arizona State University’s Flexible Display Center to create a truly flexible, paper thin, durable, energy efficient flat screen display. Prototypes at ASU are excellent, but what is yet to be seen is how and when they will get these displays mass produced into consumers hands (hopefully in the next 2-3 years).
The US Army is funding the work at ASU, which includes a consortium of other players, including Applied Materials and Hewlett Packard. These displays have the potential to expand the human experience in exciting new ways.
A decent video directly from ASU:
Several examples of competing technology from Sony and Samsung are also worth looking at here:
