I can't wait for these types of screens to be refined enough to make a truly foldable smartphone. Yes, LG's G Flex is flexible but not to the point of extreme deformity, like the ability to put in your wallet or back pocket.

FLEXIBLE DISPLAY

Excellent presentation Marin.  I think this is thinking that's definitely "outside the box". (I hate that phrase but it certainly applies here.)  Your write-up on how to accomplish the assembly is certainly great also.  As one other comment indicates, this is definitely proof of concept.  Well done.  I'm assuming you could scale this to provide a larger display.  Am I correct in this assumption?

If you mean that you can't see a use for a flexible display, it is useful when you have to show information and you can't use a rigid display.

(i.e, wearables)

This project's purpose is to show a different approach of making a flexible display.

It is not a finished project but rather a proof of concept that can be further developed.

It is cool, but I do not see a use for it. Am I missing something?
