Another cool concept video. 3M, the company famous for introducing the world to post-it notes and sandpaper, has created a technology for flexible transparent multi-touch screens. It’s not hard to think of applications for this technology and with this (mock-up) video 3M shows us a few. Now it’s up to the hardware designers to actually start using the flexible touch screens.
“[3M is] already producing these touch sensors, and the first place you’ll see them is in mobile phones later this year that will be taking advantage of the sensor’s ultra-thin bezel, five times thinner than anything else. As for curved and flexible electronics, 3M has the hardware that enables designers to create these new form factors, so it’s really just a matter of time, probably (hopefully) a short time.”
