Future generations of mobile electronic devices will contain flexible, bendable or
even rollable displays. An example of such a device, which is already entering the
market, is the Readius by Polymer Vision – see Figure 1(a). Apart from providing
a range of exciting new options for designers, the introduction of ultra-flexible
displays also presents a number of mechanical challenges to engineers, as the devices’
reliability must be guaranteed despite the additional mechanical loading due
to repeated bending and unbending.
