What is the practical usefulness of flexible displays?
dthomas 21 weeks ago
LG has announced a flexible display in a press release. I think that’s cool in a “well, that’s neat” sort of way, but what are practical uses of a flexible display. Books have remained flat for centuries, and even scrolls are generally unrolled and laid flat when someone reads them (and the LG displays are more “bendy” than paperlike, you won’t be able to roll them up). In large formats like home theater, a curved screen doesn’t seem to offer any significant practical advantages. So what is the point? What advantages are there to a flexible display that would make it worth a premium price?
