This year is extremely saturated demonstrations flexible displays and bendable products from different manufacturers. Now the Chinese company Lenovo on Tech World Conference 2016 in San Francisco demonstrated prototypes of a fully bendable own devices – smartphones and tablets. Unusually long smartphone can be mounted on the arm, like a bracelet, and a 10-inch tablet screen folds out in half, thus turning into a kind of mobile smart phone for making calls. Featured at the event, the test sample is able to call. Both prototypes is fully functional. During the demonstration, they do not properly work in any position, and their screens respond to touch.
As representatives of the company, they have managed to create a device with a fully bendable parts – the display, the battery and card. But now the serial production of flexible gadget is not possible because of their failure after a small number of bends. Now the task of engineers to bring the technology to a level where the device will be able to flawlessly pass tests with 70 thousand flexion-extension. How much time it will take, it is not specified.
