Toshiba Corp. has developed a large flexible LCD in a bid to move toward foldable LCDs. The new display is a full color 8.4-inch super-slim low-temperature polysilicon active-matrix TFT-LCD supporting SVGA resolution.

According to the company, the new display can be flexed in all directions and bent to form a curve with a radius as high as 20cm. The flexibility of the screen also increases its resistance to shock.

Applications for the new display will include TV receivers with curved screens that can be mounted in publics and information displays in trains or buses. Toshiba is now developing mass production technology for the display and Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Corp. expects to launch commercial products after fiscal year 2004.
