At 50, CES is a show in transition


ces2017-9606 Most of the attendees I spoke with walked away a little underwhelmed, struggling to put together a solid list of the things that truly wowed them at this year’s show. Even a cab driver or two, in all of their infinite Las Vegas wisdom, perceived a palatable decrease in excitement among their passengers and the city at large. Not every year can be one for the record books. That’s… Read More

XiaoMI is Working on FleXible Screen Technology

A few days ago we reported on a new patent from LG that appears to show a transparent, foldable display to work on a device similar to a book. That news wasn’t new for LG, as we knew at CES this year that the company expects to be producing flexible screens by 2017.

xiaomi-flexible-screen

Both Samsung and Lenovo have showcased similar technology, but now it looks like Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has the same idea.

A concept from the company has leaked that appears to show a display that bends in all directions, not unlike paper. Two separate renders were leaked on Baidu.

The screen appears to be flexible and can be bent up or down, left or right.

While these bendable and foldable concepts are interesting, it isn’t something you should expect to see anytime soon. It’s one thing to spend tons of money and time to produce an awesome proof of concept, but if there’s no way to bring that technology to mass production in a cost-effective manner, it’ll remain out of the hands of the general public for a while longer.
