This could be interesting

General Electric scientists have worked out how to manufacture OLED displays on a roll

The GE version is apparently for light-emitting panels (2×2 ft for the same as an incandescent bulb), but once the basic technology exists there’s not much stopping it from being used for displays.

The light-panel application is interesting because (assuming price comes down) the fact that OLEDs degrade over time stops being as much of an issue. We’re all used to replacing lightbulbs. What price would a flat, flexible display screen have to come down to so that no one would be upset about tossing an old one when it burned out and plugging in a new sheet of plastic to replace it?
