LG Display unveiled on Tuesday what it's calling the world's first high-resolution stretchable display. The technology allows for the 12-inch screen to be stretched up to 14 inches and also folded and twisted without any damage, LG said.
The color display, which has a resolution of 100 pixels per inch, is made of the same silicon material as contact lenses and uses micro-LED light sources. LG Display hopes to commercialize the new technology. The thin, rubberlike material can contour to skin, fabric and metal machines such as cars and airplanes and has promise in the automotive, fashion and service industries, LG said.
The stretchable display was the product of a company-led project in partnership with Korea's Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.
