A company called Polymer Vision (backed by Philips), recently announced a device that’s screen can be expanded by pulling on both ends (essentially it is an electronic scroll). Thats right, we are talking a display that is thin, not quite paper thin, but getting there.
Although the device, Concept Readius, will never be manufactured, Polymer Vision is using it to show the possibilities for consumer electronics. The technology allows for a device to sport a large display and all the while not sacrifice weight and size. The screen displays 320×240 pixels, is monochrome, and apparently can be viewed in bright sunlight and still maintain decent contrast.
