[EKTEK] Samsung aim to mass produce flexible AMOLED displays by 2012

It’s been reported that Samsung are looking to start mass production on its flexible AMOLED screens sometime in 2012. These will in turn be used in devices such as smartphones and watches. Apparently Samsung have teamed up with Japanese manafacturing firm Ube Kosan to make the futuristic screens.

At last we may have the perfect displays for mobile devices, not only are the flexible screens very light but they’re pretty much bullet proof too.
I remember when they were first discovering this technology, but had no idea it would come so fast or be so sturdy.There is a video proving the durability in the link.

I saw a special on these many years ago on the discovery channel.(Back then they were only on paper) and they proposed the theory that they could make a paintable material with it and possibly use it to paint the walls of your house and have them be any color you want/display images/be your tv.

I just dont know who could have theorized this, as I can not wrap my mind on how it would know what was what and how much of an area you painted, etc. Sounded implausible to me but hey who knows, think of the junk thats gonna be around when we are all 80...

Mhhh even if that's available to me, I think i'd pass.
Too much like Fahrenheit 451...

These do look cool, though by the time they become reasonably accessible we'll probably be drooling over something else,
sigh

That is amazing, I can't wait to see these enter the phone market...it make dropping phones almost a non-issue, if they could just get the rest of the circuitry as durable!
