Roll-up for the latest E Ink screen news

First came our beloved E Ink, and now it looks like others about are to enter the race. Bit Tech report that scientists from Cambridge University are attempting to create a roll-up screen to make our mobile life styles far more pleasant.

Dr Seffen who works on the project explains:
Quote:
"Flexible electronics is a burgeoning area, people are looking into making very thin flexible displays that could be used for electronic newspapers, or other portable electronic media like a roll-up laptop or compact mobile phone."

I can just see the forums buzzing, with a story about Bob sitting on the roll-up screen of his latest gizmo... and flattening it to death.

Hey! I'm on a diet, so by the time this technology gets released, I may be light as a feather. But just to be safe, remind me not to put any roll-up screens in my back pocket! ;-)
