Philips Rollable Display Demo
Philips showed off a technology we’ve been waiting a long time for: the rollable display.
This is essentially a fully functional grayscale display that you can bend (or roll). The demo station showed the display being updated in real time while continuously being rolled and unrolled.
Philips says they have rolled the display over 25,000 times without failure. It also uses very little power because the display only draws power during updates. The display will retain the last image written to it for several months without needing any power. It also retains its image perfectly while being bended or rolled even with no power applied. The display could be a huge boost for reading electronic text away from a desktop computer.
