Hardware, Embedded Systems Displays built out of plastic instead of glass would be a gadget lover's dream: they'd be rugged and lightweight, and they should be inexpensive to make on "roll-to-roll" systems similar to those used for newsprint. But to develop prototypes for flexible tablet computers and other gadgets with plastic displays, the device makers have had to develop custom equipment.

Wake me up when they get them to the stage of the scroll computers they used in the movie Red Planet http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0199753/

Well, I recall something like a scroll book when the OLED was announced. Don't remember where in the Net.

So, add to this a biometric identification feature and you have a device that shows the right content only for the right person - will be largely used by "high-tech ninjas" .

That movie really takes a lot of heat. I didn't think it was all THAT bad.
