New Flexible OLED Display Technology

I wonder how this technology will end up being utilized. Sony began mass production of full-color organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays in September of 2004. Sony has recently introduced a new twist on this technology: The new 2.5-inch OLED screen is made of a glass substrate that allows you to casually bend the screen. It uses organic thin-film transistor (TFT) technology to keep clarity in-tact, retain its 0.3mm thickness, and provide 16.8 million colors at a 120 x 160 pixel resolution. The entire thing weighs a total of 1.5 grams.

Hmm...flexible screens. Maybe I won't break so many TVs watching the news and political shows.

or....maybe they'll start building houses out of it. ;-( A.K.A. "Fahrenheit 451". I shudder as I think about what is coming next.
