Flexible displays aren't much good unless there's flexible memory alongside. It's been attempted before, but bending memory pushes the individual transistors so close that they begin to interfere with one another -- causing degradation and shortening the device lifespan to just a single day. The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has solved the problem by pairing transistors with memristors, which are immune to such annoyances.There are just two things I want, computer-wise. First, a monitor projected from my eye. And second, a computer I can roll up or fold up and take anywhere I want to go.

Come to think of it, I might not need both. Anyway, the meme has long been that countries like Korea and Japan follow rather than lead when it comes to new technology, but this is definitely an example of bucking that trend (if the trend is even valid).
