How on earth would you use this? And why? From the pic, you can't even see the whole screen. Am I overlooking some useful purpose for this?

In your screen shot, it doesn't look like a tv screen. It looks more like a very low quality scrollable photograph.

Where did you find that? Could you provide a link or web address to the page with the info about the scrollable tv screen? I'd like to read it myself.

@ Wheezer: Looks like a pianola roll. Probably belts out something hip like "Hello Dolly".

This doesn't really look like a TV screen, but I found it here:

I saw it on engadet or gizmodo yesterday. It's legit, but just a prototype. Actual uses, no clue, but it is cool that they could make an LCD (or whatever it's made of) screen that you can roll up. I think the thinness is more important than that it can bend.

One good actual use: If it's cheap, we can stick screens onto paper to make interactive books. Or, we could make portable 19' TV screens that we can use anywhere with this technology. It's light, can be rolled up and is thin.
