Flexible Liquid Crystal - the answer to our display problems?

Azom reports that HP Laboratories Bristol has developed a prototype of a display that is bistable, color, plastic and is made by imprinting and lamination processes that eliminate the expensive vacuum deposition and photolithography used to make today’s flat panels.

Does this sound like a real alternative to E-Ink's E-Paper (as used in Sony's monstrous Librie)? You bet!

Paper-like display technologies are beginning to emerge, but so far many developments still need active matrices and have focused on reflective, black-and-white displays.

“More and more content is produced in color. New display technologies cannot afford to ignore that if they are ever to compete with books, art, magazines and posters,” said Adrian Geisow, manager of Displays Research, HP Laboratories, Bristol.


Unfortunately it can still take a few more years of further applied research to properly develop and assess the commercial potential of this technology.

Thanks to Teleread for the link.
