DocScrutinizer05\o/ flexible22:45
wpwrakboring. how long until they make them elastic ?22:47
DocScrutinizer050.44mm thin22:48
DocScrutinizer05>>019. LG Display plans to advance flexible display technologies and bring innovation to consumers daily lives with the introduction of **rollable** and **foldable** displays in various sizes<<22:50
DocScrutinizer05no damn silly projector :-D22:51
wpwrakfold, then pass over it with the fingernail to make a neat edge ;-)22:52
DocScrutinizer05press the button, then take a hammer and hit it to make sure it's completely pressed down23:00
DocScrutinizer05I think roll-out displays are the future23:01
DocScrutinizer05we even had some rather futuristic design study somewhere in neighbourhood of OM, that been based on exactly this idea. A spindle-shaped object with a small gandle to pull out a display to the side23:03
DocScrutinizer05wrist-watch alike smart devices with all surface just display is another design concept that matches nice with flexible OLED23:04
wpwrakbetter: make them (")simply(") flexible and robust. maybe like a thin mouse pad.23:05
DocScrutinizer05dang, I can't recall where I've seen this thingie with the pull-out display23:06
DocScrutinizer05wpwrak: I think a "flexible" smartphone been demonstrated during last 12 months on some fair23:07
wpwrakthat was philips (or maybe NXP)23:08
wpwrak(the pull-out display)23:08
DocScrutinizer05maybe they released a note about that stuff, but I don't see this gnoki-shaped thing with the handle on one side to pull out the display, when I think NXP/Philips23:27
DocScrutinizer05might have been the site logo of one of the OM resellers23:28
DocScrutinizer05or some forum or whatever23:28
wpwrakthey sold the division later to, i think PDI23:28
wpwrakthis one: http://gadgetflash.blogspot.com.ar/2005/09/philips-presents-rollable-display.html23:36
DocScrutinizer05yeah, the one I meant was working exactly like this, but the lefthand "main" body been shaped roughly like a spindle or gnoki23:41
DocScrutinizer05and the whole thing been a drawing23:41
DocScrutinizer05but, yeah, that's exactly what I believe is the future of handheld/embedded23:41
wpwrakseems clumsy. i'd rather have a sheet that doesn't come with fancy mechanics23:42
DocScrutinizer05the mchanics are not visible when done right23:46
wpwrakkeep them morlocks in their caves :)23:47
Action: whitequark . o O ( http://0-media-cdn.foolz.us/ffuuka/board/a/image/1368/42/1368428042036.jpg )23:48
DocScrutinizer05it's just about how to carry a 12" screen in your pocket23:48
wpwrakshe does not look happy23:48
DocScrutinizer05sure, i'd also not look happy when I had to read stuff on a transparent glass plate23:49
wpwrakshrink google glass ?23:49
whitequarkcouldn't find an animated sequence--it's exactly the pull-out thing you're talking about23:49
whitequarkwhen it's folded, it looks like a bluetooth headset23:50
whitequarklife imitating art :p23:50
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: I wonder about that 0.5mm thick OLED display. won't it be somewhat transparent?23:51
