I think fragile covers is a big issue too. Flexible plastic is soft. After a short period it will appear scratched and dull.

Rumor is the new Apple Watch coming out is going to have the watchband as part of the display

Samsung may launch foldable display phones this year. They're a little more innovative than a lot of the other phone developers out there depending on who you ask.

Sony did this back in 2007... no one remember this?

As a display technology, it may be novel, but it's not especially useful. The real value of this technology is its use in solar which, due to its ability to wrap, allows for dramatically improved rates of energy capture.

I have a project for a flexible gaming device since over 15 years and was waiting for the technology to be there. But now I need developers and loads of money to realise it. Drop a note if you want to get in touch.

Remember when the consumer market was demanding flexible displays? Me neither.. This is a solution to a non market need. Nobody cares about this.
fuzzywzhe (3 months ago)
There's not a market demand for them. It's as simple as that. Compact, portable, and light weight has to be balanced with durable. You already have a super computer in your pocket with a modern phone. That's compact, portable, and light weight. A typical smart phone today, is entirely capable of doing nuclear bomb simulation, its power is simply wasted on inept coding and trivial visual effects. I'm not kidding when I say this either. My first computer had 4KB or RAM, and ran at less than a 1Mhz. I learned to write code on that, at 9 years old - that machine can be simulated on my phone at the transistor level at over 10,000 times the speed, written in Java,which is interpreted. People who weren't born before, say, the Nintendo Entertainment System, have absolutely no idea how far we've progressed.

I care because it is compact, portable, light weight and can easily be put in small places.

You do know that "Samsung Edge" has a flexi display right? Roll up display & interchangeable component phone was a very old concept by students all over the world ever since before the release of Minority Report. Both concepts doesn't sit well with current sales strategies, where financial values for the interchangeable concept is highly questionable (considering USB-C only taken seriously because of Lightning connector). And the roll up / flexi display? The folding mechanism isn't reliable enough for mass market, (not volume, demands are there). That is why ALL the flexi screen trade show will able to tell you about their screen with such "bend X angle" and "bend radius value", because it will dictate how the folding mechanism works on a phone. Right now it just too limiting to be reliable, not volume.

How about roll able screen in a pen like cylinder stretch out for screen press button so spring roll the screen back and it becomes a pen. Easy to carry unlike these bricks that we carry around.

I feel like the foldable oled in a phone would be a huge problem. What are the use cases with that kind of device? And when it folds, the biggest issue I see happening is that it can't fold FLAT. There needs to be some bend, and it would make the phone fatter as a result. I assume you can't crease these things, but if that becomes possible who knows

Since I never said that, I have no idea. A "use case" is something different.

some entrepreneurs may be hesitant to launch a product due to the sheer size of an investment that would needed to be made. That does not mean those inventors have given up or are afraid (of that ideal being knocked off) it means they could be very well looking for ways to ensure they have a leadership position in the industry. If you know your product has viability in this highly competitive environment and you don't want to go the way of the 15-minutes of-fame-inventor-genius-who-was-unable-to-finance-grow-adapt-and-compete you would take your time as well. Nothing beats innovation like cheating, thieving, patent infringing, politician bought corporations that can mass produce a product (your stolen ideal) over night and tie you up in litigation for decades. Combine that second paragraph with crooked financiers, insider trading corporate executives, bubble creating loud mouth hedge fund duplicitous flunkies and you have the perfect storm that can halt or slow down investment in great ideals. The only thing a lot of inventors are thinking about is how to launch successfully and stay relevant (and in some cases those who give a crap trying not to become one of the above).

well new technology needs at leats 4-5 years of testing and solving various problems before it hits the market, but i think we will be able to see the first products in 2019. personally i would like to see a flip-phone with this screen thechnology.tell me your opinions.
redstone craft guy (3 months ago)
2019? That's maybe a little too soon considering the dificulty and challanges that needed to be overcome to make this technology a reality.

put then in cars, in planes and it's less weight, on school desk, my daughter already get assigned a tablet at school to do some class assignments that i pay for upfront put then on desk i don't have to worry about my all thumbs 12 yr old dropping it and breaking another one.
redstone craft guy (3 months ago)
Put them in car? But you shouldn't look at screens when you are driving.
nightmisterio (5 months ago)
This screens should be used in VR headsets for a bigger field of view
ReCycle Spinning (5 months ago)
Old flip phones were safer when driving. Phone rings,, flip,, talk... Now phone rings,,, you have to slide the button to talk .. Not safe while driving. Have a phone that flips open again u talk,, or you flip open large screen mode.. Now u got some thing.. Now they gonna steal my idea.. How bout some royalties or a free phone at least,?? Also if you work construction a foldable phone which had built in drop protection would be good...
dailyflash (5 months ago)
The way things are changing so quickly, I think it's foolish to call a new technology useless or a waste.
Yash Pal Goyal (5 months ago)
My opinion is that the mentality many people (for phones) have is that they dont want to try new things and new concept phones simply dont take off. Ara, ubuntu edge, modular phones, lg g5, moto mods.....u name it....these products are criticized (I dont know y), people may seem interested but these are not widely purchased.....same will go with flexible displays I think.......TechAltar explains this well in his video for android authority- 'age of ultrapremium flagships'. People want "BIG BRANDING" !!!! (not aimed at some particular brand, nor at their fanboys, personal opinions based on the trends for the phones with pretty new experiments)
redstone craft guy (3 months ago)
Idk about you but when it come out, I WILL BUY IT.
Sunil Singla (5 months ago)
No benefit of such technology if it can't reach the majority of the people because of the less availability and unbelievable price...

every new tech will have early problems in ramping up its production. Look at the face id with apple and teslas model 3.. all have production bottle necks. this type of product will come with consumer expectations and those are something companies are racing to complete even if it takes years to accomplish. Hopefully with AI learning and integration, solutions to problems or hurdles will be completed alot quicker than predicted.

We could make flexible processors. But can we make flexible batteries? Doubt. And a screen needs a good battery anyway.
redstone craft guy (3 months ago)
Just put the battery outside of the screen.
Arnav Singh (5 months ago)
Current LCD & LED industry is worth billions of dollar, they certainly don't want to lose that potential of billions of dollar and flexible screens don't have a practical implication in the smartphone market. simply, curved screens don't do much but I think other than trying to find their share in the current market they are going to make a new market for itself because it will make digitizing environment easy and will even revolutionize it for advertizement world.

Flexible screens are practical, they are compact, portable, light weight and can be put in small places.

Though, gaming on a curved display surrounding you would look awesome. Like a semi circle.
Lincoln Pascual (6 months ago)
I could see a big military application for this. Remember the OPSAT from Splinter Cell? That level of Intel at the hands of ground level troops would be a game changer. Today's options at to stiff and clunky... they do it so that it's durable. But being big and beefy isn't always the correct answer. A tough, durable but flexible product would be able to survive impacts a lot better than current options.

Where do you connect it to your video source? What if you want multiple inputs? How robust are they? How many times can you fold/roll them before they crack?

They don't crack, flexible things don't crack only hard things like rock crack.

What's keeping flexible displays from taking over is that flat, nonflexible displays make way more sense.
Sandro Fortini (7 months ago)
One obvious used example of applying this was in military by creating illusions to deceive eyes and surveillance with cameras on opposite angles replicating images on objects of many types facing the direction that is being perceived, this can permit soldiers or injured people to moved around easier with other tactical methods outsmarting others, smoke and mirror techniques, the real future is perfecting hollow graphics, or combining these two together,how, I refuse to specify

Daren Wilson (7 months ago)
The problem I see is: what useful worthy application do these have? Especially in the next five years or so. If I want to watch a documentary, or a music video, or whatever, why would I want to see it on a surface that isn't flat or slightly curved? I can imagine maybe a computer/video screen I can roll up for portability, but not for use while playing video. Or start with flexibility - what things need to curve? Clothes. Furniture. Car exteriors. Why would I want to play video on those surfaces? To make interesting patterns, changing colors, have visual design change with the time of day or season of year. That could be interesting. But for now, this stuff is too stiff for clothing, probably not rugged enough for furniture, and I don't know how well it would survive a car wash or splatted bugs. Maybe in a few years...
