Toshiba throws a curve in LCD market

Toshiba announced Monday that it has developed a large, flexible liquid crystal display. The 8.4-inch low-temperature polysilicon screen is flexible enough that it can be bent into a curve while displaying images, bringing the technology closer to the ultimate goal of foldable displays. The screen is less than 0.4mm thick and weighs less than 20 grams. Toshiba is working to have the screen technology ready for mass production by 2005 but will present it at the Society for Information Display 2002 conference, in Boston, Mass., from May 21 to May 23.
