We've been dreaming about this for decades, hearing about this for years, real prototype is shown by Sony!

...The technology hinges on a new kind of organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) based on a new semiconducting material that has eight times the current modulation rate of existing OTFTs. This makes the display powerful, but there's at least one more clever trick--instead of relying on driving electronics based on conventional solid chips in their familiar little black plastic packages, Sony's built all the display driver tech out of OTFTs themselves, and integrated them into the actual panel the display itself is made on. This is crafted from a super-thin (20 micron-thick) substrate, making it flexible enough to be repeatedly rolled around a tube of diameter of just 4mm, as well as being stretched....

I forget where I saw it, but a year or so ago I also saw similar innovations in speaker design... where they had a "sheet" speaker essentially.

Teaming OLED + paper-thin speaker technology means we aren't too far away from some really cool stuff!

Here's one link I re-found...

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Well, that and Monster.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
