    Sony develops TV as thin as paper

    In the race for ever-thinner displays for TVs, cell phones and other gadgets, Sony may have developed one to beat them all - a razor-thin display that bends like paper while showing full-color video.

    Sony Corp. released video of the new 2.5-inch display Friday. In it, a hand squeezes a display that is 0.3 millimeters, or 0.01 inch, thick. The display shows color images of a bicyclist stuntman and a picturesque lake.

    Although flat-panel TVs are getting slimmer, a display that's so thin it bends in a human hand marks a breakthrough.

    Sony said it has yet to decide on commercial products using the technology.

    "In the future, it could get wrapped around a lamppost or a person's wrist, even worn as clothing," said Sony spokesman Chisato Kitsukawa. "Perhaps it can be put up like wallpaper."
    Wow.

    For a moment they had the world's smallest I-Max theatre.

      Do 'small' and 'I-Max' go together?

      @saber - yeah, this has been on the verge of rollout for awhile. A project I am working on is working on using the technology to wrap columns outside a theater.

              Are you refering to my project?

              It'll have a protective, transparent covering over it. So unless a car had braking problems (or a maintenance cart in this case), it wouldn't be a problem.

                Good idea. I was thinking it would be like the movie poster frames in front of theaters, with a sheet of glass in front to protect from vandalism.

                What do you use for cylindrical posts? Glass, or some kind of plastic that won't fade or fog or discolor in sunlight?

                  Actually Foam since they aren't actually structural posts. I am not sure about the protective covering, except that it is single-piece - some kind of polycrystalline material comes to mind.

                  We've done the video movie-poster displays before. One site has 24 of them. They display the movie poster / what's status is (release date, coming soon, now playing) and then they run the movie teaser. The columns are for local curtural arts event announcements, opening / intermission / closing updates,, stuff about the current production.. stuff like that.

                            I presume this T.V. uses the OLED technology developed way back in the '80s?
