HP’s Flexible Plastic LCD

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. It’s not fast enough for video yet—it takes about half-a-second to switch to a new image—but it does have the advantage of being bistable, which is to say that it retains its image even when not receiving power. The sample shown is just 3cm by 4cm, but HP obviously hopes to make something more of it in the future.
