Pretty cool. But once the screen is installed somewhere what is the point of having a bendable screen? If it always need a cable plugged to a solid unit then, it's useless IMO.

I don't know what the use would be for this but it could mean cheaper rounded screens.

You can't think of a use?

Imagine having a tube that you could fit in your pocket, you pull on an end and out rolls a screen. Perhaps incorporated in this device are all the features of an iPod or iPhone. It'd be like a phone with a slide out keyboard, only this.
