Remember the curved phone from LG, the LG G Flex? There's actually truth to its name. Not only does the back cover 'heal' from scratches, the phone itself is actually, honest-to-god flexible. It bends without breaking or damaging the phone. So yes, this device may look silly - but the future is peeking into the present here. Quite amazing.

Yes this is a cool trick and a very cool feat of engineering. But what's the real world advantage of a flexible phone? I can't think of anything. Perhaps it is more robust to falls by absorbing some of the energy? They should do some drop tests on that.
