"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Leading The Way In Flexi-Screen Technology

I didn't think I'd find any truly positive news so this is a bit of a find.

Scientists at the University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory have developed a flexible roll-up screen with scrolling news and moving pictures. It needs re-charging once a fortnight and is set to challenge companies offering electronic books such as Sony and Amazon Kindle.

Plastic Logic will be launched in America at the beginning of 2010 followed by Britain in late-2010/early-2011.


  1. Hopefully one will be able to transport the 'roll up screen' in a long trouser pocket . . .

    "Are you pleased to see me or is that your flexible entertainment device?"

    Positively smutty ;-)

  2. Rofl, trust G.O.T to think along these lines.

    I think this is a great idea, I could watch my favourite programmes when stuck in the Sainsbury's queue.

  3. An 'A4 Flexible Entertainment Device', that would make anyone's eyes water - and it's *British*.

  4. There are scientists at the University of Swindon who even now are working at implanting the 'flexible entertainment device' subcutaneously, and upside down, into the human abdomen.

    We can then contemplate our navels and be entertained at the same time. Brilliant!
