Last time we saw one of Shinoda's ever-growing 1mm-thick flexible displays, its squat figure and sorry 960x360 resolution weren't exactly blowing minds. But this version—essentially two of the prior models, stacked—does HD. Yes.
The underlying plasma tube (PTA) technology remains the same, and the new set is constructed from component panels identical to those in prior examples, but Shinoda has managed to stitch the panels into an almost seamless 3:2 display, reaching the crucial 720p vertical resolution threshold in a 2-meter-tall display that weighs an incredible 16 pounds.
Best of all, Shinoda is moving closer to production of such panels, announcing business alliances with WAIEISHII and Itochu, a do-it-all, GE-like Japanese megacorporation. So somebody might actually make this thing, someday. [Impress Watch]
