The idea oftruly flexible displays never gets boring, and now LG has created its biggest bendable screen to date: an 18-inch OLED panel that has enough flexibility to roll into a tube that's an inch across.

The prototype display uses a new polyamide film at the back instead of the usual plastic to make it thinner and, in turn, more flexible. It has a resolution of 1,200 x 810 and essentially is enough to make us dream of rollable, bendable, tablets.

But LG has more up its sleeve. Its Head of R&D, In-Byung Kang, claims that "by 2017, we will successfully develop an Ultra HD flexible OLED panel of more than 60 inches." Yes, that'll be a roll-up TV. [Engadget]

I dream of the day I can view television on a roll-up, overhead projector-styled screen. The best part will be how strange things will look when the image constantly looks skewed due to the screen not being perfectly flat/ affixed to anything ridged.

I really am excited for this tech.
