Sony shows off future technology

"Rollable" OLED displays anyone?

It's fair to say that here at WDC we get excited by new technologies. Barely a day passes in the office without an email getting sent round showcasing some new weird and wonderful gadget, even if it's still in the nuts and bolts form of the production phase.

Sony is very good at providing us with such fodder, and its repeated the trick this morning with development details of a new "Rollable" 4.1in OLED OTFT colour screen. Sony used a host of new processes and materials to produce the screen, though the  press release uses jargon beyond even our geekish comprehension.

It's interesting to consider the implications of the technology however. Imagine, for example, having an extendable screen on the rear of you Sony Alpha DSLR, or an OLED photoframe which you could roll up and place in your photobag on your travels? Have a look at the video on the Sony webpage and let us know if you can think of any possible implementations of the technology in our comments section.
