E-paper displays have their advantage and disadvantages over a standard LCD/LED panel, and while they are flexible and suck up very little juice, you can’t really throw fast moving graphics as well as millions of colors at it. Well, Sony might just introduce a future game changer with their latest prototype flexible electronic paper display that relies on plastic substrate instead of glass substrate that is extremely common today. The latter is heavier and more prone to damage than the former, where plastic substrate will also add greater degrees of bendability to it. Heck, it is touted to be difficult to break even when dropped, and is flexible enough to be rolled up just like actual paper. Sony has yet to mention when such technology will make it to the mainstream, but we think they will perfect it in a couple of years’ time.
