Suspended in a flexible matrix of carbon nanotubes and rubber, the new OLED displays can be stretched an additional 50% of their normal size and wrapped around complex, 3D surfaces. No, they aren't paper-thin like other prototypes we've seen and the graphics are currently monochrome, but these OLEDs appear to be incredibly practical for everyday use. Plus, the displays can be manufactured through an industrial printing process that should make the technology inexpensive to boot...you know...some day...or never...or tomorrow...or something. Neither children's toys nor condoms will ever be the same. [Technology Review via KurzweilAI]
