Gizmodo writes about HP’s flexible plastic LCD panel that will one day surely be on our wrists:
Although it’s far from being put into a commercial product, HP Labs showed off a flexible plastic LCD panel Monday in London that they hope will be used in signs and other static display devices.

Let people read time off your shirt. Just make sure you don’t tag it somewhere inappropriate.
This is a great utility watch – The CADEX Medication Reminder, not only reminds you when its time for your medication (and it’ll keep on telling you until you take it), but it’ll tell you what medication you require and if things don’t look good, it comes with an alert button that will display the following information (Similar to a medical I.D.) on your screen so you get immediate help:
Recently we ran an interview with Mr. Matthew Waldman, the designer behind the Nooka – a watch that explores new ways of telling time. Well, here’s an exclusive preview of future models you should expect to see:
