I doubt this is close to reality....virtually all flexible electronics is based on organic semiconductors wheer carriers mobility is very low...so the electronics processing will have to be done in conventional silicon chips, you can't bend them, at leats not yet

Good idea @DrQuine...another way would be to thin silicon so much that is bendable...STM is trying that approaca as far as I know
