LG to produce roll up screen for your device


A roll up plastic display screen that you can tuck into a bag after using? Sounds like a thing of the future right?

Well LG Displays announced their plans to develop such a device that can be used on tablets, iPads and even on your TV screens.

The company has been pursuing the technology for a few years and today, LG Displays said that the world’s first roll-up screen will be released in Europe next month.

Head of operations for LG Displays mobile/OLED division Sang Duck Yeo said, “With the world’s first plastic EPD, LG Display has once again proven its reputation for leadership and innovation with a product we believe will help greatly popularize the e-book market. We are excited as we look toward applying concepts form this experience to future developments like plastic OLED and flexible displays.”

But a few individuals are less optimistic about the announcement.

A display industry expert and the man behind HDTVProfessor.com Alfred Poor said, “This is a relatively small development in the grand scheme of things. This appears to be a monochrome e-paper display. This means that it… has low power consumption, but it also means that it’s probably slow and not suitable for moving images such as video. It’s not in color, and probably has limited grayscale capabilities.”
