Electrophoretic displays (electronic ink-based systems) are gaining ground, or at least more firms are working on them. E-Ink, Kodak, Philips, and other firms exhibited flexible rollup displays which looked very cool. In the Philips booth, their flexi-displays were mounted to an automated motor that rolled and unrolled the rectangular displays into tight cylinders while the imagery on them changed. Guess that's the whole point. Actually, a Kodak rep said the point was that display flexibility implies lower cost because the backplane is simpler.
