CD Digital Card of Rancho Cucamonga, CA has produced a new optical disc, the Flex DVD, that is lightweight, flexible and uses only half the polycarbonate chemicals of a standard DVD-5.

The company also notes that the thin, flexible construction makes printing, binding and publishing less expensive.
