Sony debuts flexible TV screen

It's only a 2.5-inch prototype, but it's a first

Sony

Like many other TV makers , Sony has been working on screens made with organic light-emitting diodes for some time to produce paper-thin displays as well as save energy. But ratcheting up the competition even further, it just unveiled what it calls the world's first flexible version.

The company claims to have developed a new technology that uses plastic instead of glass to make OLED screens that can actually bend (hopefully without breaking), according to Pink Tentacle. Its 2.5-inch prototype weighs only 1.5 grams--that's 0.053 ounces for the metric-challenged among us.

There's no specific product yet for the technology, but the possibilities seem endless. Wrap-around TV glasses, anyone?
