10.4-inch flexible LCD

Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute has created a thin, flexible, 10.4-inch display, local news reports. Closely resembling e-paper, the ITRI's prototype is actually a new form of cholesteric LCD, with thickness reduced to half at less than 0.4 inches. The flexibility comes from dropping a glass substrate in favor of two plastic ones, which allow the display to curve in unusual directions. The LCD does have two present drawbacks: blank spaces may appear, and its 57 percent NTSC gamut is less than that of conventional desktop monitors. [via DigiTimes]
