Samsung demonstrates fully foldable OLED cell phone screen

The footage is a bit grainy, and once you’ve seen ten seconds you’ve seen it all, but this clip captured at the Samsung booth of last week’s FPD International show basically shows the future of displays: bright, fully-foldable OLED screens.

We’re years from seeing this technology in action, but I can’t wait: fully foldable screens mean the 17-inch netbooks of 2011.

    Freakin’ awesome.

    I second the rollable. Once a laptop can be rolled up like a newspaper we’ll be talking about a whole lot of cool.

    Also someone needs to create rollable newspaper like screens that aren’t backlit. Or at least only backlit when outside lighting doesn’t suffice.

    Just imagine the coolness of an OLED “paper” airplane.

    John – edit that 10 seconds to 35 – that’s roughly where the folding bit happens….

    Does foldable = rollable? Are we going to be able to store our super-high quality TVs away like a rolled-up projector screen?
