Bendable Screens

Imagine reading the morning’s news on your iPad — but instead of fitting it back into its case when you’re done and placing it in your briefcase, you roll it up like a newspaper and stuff it in your purse.

That scenario will soon be a reality, thanks to bendable screen technology’s recent splash at CES.

During Samsung’s keynote address this week, executives talked up Youm, its new super-thin, flexible display, and while it has the “wow” factor to generate hype, the technology’s practical applications beyond the smartphone may make it a lasting breakthrough.
