Intel's flexible screen

One of the other recent visitors to the US Patent Office is Intel, who have patented a technique for making flexible mobile displays. Two screens are used, with each pixel being represented by ring connecting the two sides. Particles inside the rings adjust the reflectivity (brightness) of the pixels through controlled magnets.

Intel's exact plans for technology are unknown -- while the company does make processors for cellphones and other mobile devices, it has never ventured into displays before, which suggests a desire for deeper involvement in the mobile realm. Flexible screens should allow for more rugged and/or stylized devices, less susceptible to breaking when dropped. [via Unwired View]
