What if someone threw your e-book reader out of a window and onto concrete? If you had the Wexler Flex One e-book reader, you can rest assured that your device is perfectly fine. With LG Flex technology, you no longer have to worry about broken screens. It’s flexible.
Here’s a short video of the device put through a beating:
This flexible screen technology will soon expand to other products, such as smartphones. Imagine flipping your phone out to reveal a tablet screen. Or imagine these screens used as wristbands or “smartwatches” so you no longer have to dig in your pocket or purse for your mobile device. Here’s a video of some possibilities from Samsung:
I see great potential for this technology, especially when marketed to children. A parent would hesitate to give an e-book reader to a child because they may break it, but this technology solves that major hurdle. With flexible screens, the digital book industry may expand its reach to younger children. It may take a while for this to become reality, however. The Wexler Flex One costs roughly $300, a price many parents are unwilling to pay.
