Digital displays in the near future have high resolution, are paper-thin, and can be rolled up like a newspaper.

That’s what this bunch of University of Cambridge researchers are developing. And the clincher, says Dr. Keith Seffen of Cambridge’s Department of Engineering, is that the structures will use regular sheets of copper alloy and will not even require any advanced manufacturing processes or special materials.

“[The sheets] are simply made and their operation does not rely upon advanced materials.” He adds that the sheets will be stiff, but still foldable. Since no hinges or locks are required to fold the material, Seffen predicts that the sheets could actually be cheaper and faster to produce than traditional folding materials.
