PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is so cool, and defeninitely the future of mobile phone displays. Samsung demonstrated a prototype phone with a flexible display. Flexible displays will be more resilient than the stuff we use today, and if we ever get around to developing flexible PCBs and batteries, we'll be golden. I long for sturdy, shatterproof devices.

Of course flexible materials are more sturdy than non.

It's much harder to break a flexible material then a rigid one.


Depends on what you do to it. It's much easier to cut rubber than steel but rubber doesn't bend out of shape. Both materials have properties that, when used in the right context, makes them better than the other.

Personally, I think, the biggest use for flex is when we get to fold-able devices


Guess what will happen to the display at the line where you fold it all the time.
