Coolest technology ever to come out in recent times. What many people don’t see is that flexible plastic screens can be used for people in rugged jobs like the military who can simply slip the screen into their load carriers and not fear it breaking. If you asked me, once Plastic Logic comes up with a flexible screen with a better frame rate, people will start buying them up at the drop of a hat. This technology can even be used for TV and computer screens. Imagine simply pasting your screen on your wall instead of looking for a bracket to mount the monitor. That, and eliminating the need for expensive and elaborate carriers when bringing the monitor back from shop. http://www.hammerplastics.com

Okay, thanks!...good to see that they changed the direction quickly and focused into this relatively newer topic wisely to be the first one in coming out with something such as this. Hope to see a breakthrough soon.

Frustratingly close in terms of video - but the iPhone and iPad high resolution full motion color displays represent formidable, mass produced, alternatives that are thin enough to be very convenient even if they are not flexible. Maybe Plastic Logic should instead focus on static displays that can be rolled up for convenient transport and then unrolled to produce a large format display.

@Sanjib Sort of Rather they were somewhere around the same quality as Kindle but at considerably higher price

" The company invested to create a manufacturing site in Dresden, Germany, but was forced to cancel the Que e-reader project in August."...what was the reason why this was "forced" to be cancelled? They could not do a better one than Kindle?
