flexible organic display

If there's one way to make any piece of technology instantly cooler, it's to make it flexible.  So Kyoto University's gotten on our good side with a bendable OLED display panel jointly developed with Mitsubishi Chemical Corp, Pioneer, and Rohm Co. Right now they just have a business card-sized prototype that only emits blue rays, but they assure us it can be adapted to display a full range of colors.  The organic part comes from the bio-nanofibers used to make the display resistant to heat, without which it apparently wouldn't hold its form.  They also say their prototype is more cost-effective than other flexible displays, although they didn't reveal exactly how much more.
