Mechanicum: It's all well and good as long as it holds more than current technologies. If your tradeoff is much less battery capacity no consumer will really care if it's flexible.
dbirchall: So, uh... okay, this is cool, but what kind of consumer electronics need to be able to bend? All I can think of are things that little kids are going to treat brutally, maybe some kinds of sex toys, and those little "fitness bracelet" things. I don't really want my phone, TV, clock, radio, laptop, or anything else to get all Persistence of Memory on me. What am I missing?
the_sidewinder: imagine having a small phone, maybe the size of a fat pen, and imagine that the screen, should you want/need it, could be unrolled from it, or perhaps held on both ends by solid "posts" that would house the electronics, but telescope apart to reveal the screen
