FlexEnable stated, “Our unique technology permits electronics to be manufactured on flexible plastic film, the thickness of a sheet of paper. It combines stable, high performance organic thin-film transistors (OTFT) with passive elements to create really flexible and cost-effective electronics over big and small surfaces.”

FlexEnable’s prototype flexible LCD display makes use of plastic transistors to create an organic liquid crystal display (OLCD) screens. The plastic transistors afford builders the ability to bend the gadget. Although these screens don’t at present have touchscreen function abilities, they can be operated by tapping on function buttons positioned on the edges of the gadget, to scroll by the icons displayed on the screen.

FlexEnable doesn’t plan to create a standalone new product, instead the consumer tech agency plans to collaborate with different electronic goods producers to deliver the technology to the market, according to the company’s representative Paul Cain.

Flexible technology isn’t limited to wearable devices. It may also be integrated in artistic smartphone designs, display screens on vehicles or maybe even personalized security technology gadgets. With leading technology giants like LG and Samsung already providing customers curved smartphones, flexible technology may just be the next huge thing in consumer expertise.
