Big Screen for mobile phone

Scientists at England's University of Cambridge are developing a laptop screen that can be rolled up and carried about just like newspaper. Keith Seffen, a lecturer in the school's engineering department, has created a range of solid materials that can morph into different shapes without losing functionality or strength. His prototypes include a thin, flexible computer display that can be rolled into a tube for easy storage in a briefcase or pocket. The approach uses metal that has been prestressed in such a way that it can be folded or rolled without using hinges or any locking mechanisms.
