Roll-up screens 'moving closer' - Roll-up screens 'moving closer'

The BBC reports; "A Cambridge team have developed metal structures that can morph from flat screens into tubes and other shapes. They say in the future the structures could form the basis for electronic displays that could be rolled-up and placed in a bag or pocket. The scientists believe the material could also be used for re-usable packaging, roll-up keyboards and self-erecting temporary shelters. The metal sheets, made from copper alloys, work without the need for moving parts such as hinges, latches or locks. They "snap" from one shape into another, from a flat sheet to a coil, bent or twisted structure."

We are producing the supporting material for flexible electronics. "Flexible electronics is a burgeoning area, people are looking into making very thin flexible displays that could be used for electronic newspapers, or other portable electronic media like a roll-up laptop or compact mobile phone."
