Flexible Displays

One of the big limiting factors with current computers are not processing power, it is the display.  To really change the way we do things in society we need much larger displays, and much cheaper.  Fortunately, this is the trends in display technology.  Here is a video of a flexible display.  I predict within 10 years we will be able to buy rolls of very low cost displays and put them on our walls like wall paper.  Imagine the walls of your room as a very high quality display.  Or every table you sit at with a display built into the surface.  Your cell phone talks to it via Wireless Video technology. (See this blog post on Wireless HD).

Once you can get very cheap screens like this, you can build a CAVE.  Now that is cool tech!

This is the kind of disruptive technology I love!

  1. Flexible displays would be a major asset in our household, between my husband and I we can’t get enough of a really good display…if it were portable, I would be in heaven!

    • Yeah I want to wall paper the walls of my house with displays. Not sure my wife would approve though! 🙂

  2. Couldn’t get the link to Cave to work.

  3. I fixed the link to the CAVE. Thanks Book Chook!
