Imagine you had an E-Reader that looked, felt, and folded just like a newspaper. The same form factor people have enjoyed for centuries, but with the ability to store new media and refresh itself every day. An invention like that might not be enough to save the print media industry, but it could at least revolutionize E-Readers.
I really shouldn't talk about flexible e-paper in theoretical terms. It exists right-freaking-now (Electronista). LG has unveiled their first flexible ePaper prototypes. These sheet-displays are just .01" thick with a TFT array and a strip of metal foil to help it return to its original shape. This ePaper cannot be completely folded, but they're getting there.
Before you get too excited, it's worth nothing that this product isn't anywhere close to hitting stores anywhere. LG has proved that they can get ePaper to work, but they haven't yet managed to stick a processor, chipset, or memory inside of it.
