It's a total cliché that these things are always five years away from being commercialized, but Sony and the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research have developed a prototype for a new ultrathin display that should start showing up in TVs and cellphones sometime around 2010. The display, which is just 0.35mm thick and can be rolled up like a piece of paper when you're not using it (or when you need to swat a fly), has a resolution of 79dpi, and apparently has yet to be photographed (translation: if you spot a pic of this, let us know).
