Wired.com features ASU research on flexible display tech


Arizona State University's Flexible Display Center

Wired’s Gadget Lab blog has posted an article that features the Flexible Display Center at Arizona State University. The headline: Flexible Displays Closer to Reality, Thanks to U.S. Army.

Imagine a screen so thin, light and flexible that it can be rolled up and carried in your pocket, while consuming almost zero power.

That technology could become reality in two to three years, thanks to U.S. Army-backed research.

Arizona State University’s Flexible Display Center says it is closer than ever to bringing flexible displays to large-scale production, with some help from the U.S. Army. According to Army researchers, the displays could be in field trials with soldiers as early as 2010 or 2011.
