Flexible Screens Closer?

by F.

Just tell me when they are available:

“Flexible electronics is a burgeoning area, people are looking into making very thin flexible displays that could be used for electronic newspapers, or other portable electronic media like a roll-up laptop or compact mobile phone.”

Been hearing about this for, like, eons. Xerox had something in the pipeline, but this looks different, since it holds its shape.

The metal sheets, made from copper alloys, work without the need for moving parts such as hinges, latches or locks. They “snap” from one shape into another, from a flat sheet to a coil, bent or twisted structure.

Productize that thing already! More at the BBC, including a diagram.
