HP and ASU demo bendable, unbreakable electronic displays

Arizona State University has a 250,000 square-foot flexible display research center.
Nearly four years after opening comes this, a prototype device that's purportedly easy to manufactur, easy on the environment and practically as strong as Thor. HP and ASU have teamed up to demonstrate the fresh e-displays, which are constructed almost entirely of plastic and consume far less power than traditional computer monitors. The "unbreakable displays" were crafted using self-aligned imprint lithography (SAIL) technology invented in HP Labs, and while we'd love to see this in a pliable laptop at CES 2009, we suspect it'll be a few years yet before these slither out to the commercial realm. Major manufacturers from Asia and Europe and North America are also working on this technolog.
