PlasticLogic makes ePaper screens for eBook readers and other devices. Now the company’s showing of a new flexible display that could be used for smartwatches or other wearable products.

The new screen is a flexible AMOLED display that can be used for curved devices such as watches or bracelets.

PlasticLogic’s new display can show 256 different shades of gray and offers screen refresh rates of up to 30 frames per second, which means it could be used for video as well as text and images.

Flexible displays are tougher to break because they have no glass to shatter and they can bend. In fact, in the demo video below you can see a screen continue to display video even as it’s bent.

  1. This is awesome! Someone needs to make a smart watch with this display. This is how you make a smart watch with a display big enough to actually read and not be huge on your wrist!

    1. I think that would make smart watches even more appealling. I think an OLED devices are cool.
