    Nice, hopefully this is around the corner. I'm trying to temper my expectations though as we are not going to see any "foldable" screens soon, rather they are bendable around a corner, the size of that corner remains to be seen. I'm afraid of how thick one of these is going to be in order to achieve the bend, and also how useful simply elongating a screen is versus unfolding it from four folds and getting a screen 4x as large.

    I'd love a device like the tablets and phones on Westworld:)

    I was telling my son's the same thing last Sunday. Love those foldable phone/tablets on that show.
