Paint on the wall tv screens?

Abstract:
Imagine your television or computer screen coming from a container as something to be applied to a flat surface like a wall—or, screens so flexible that they can be rolled up and put in a pocket.

Those futuristic screens are closer to reality. John Protasiewicz, Case Western Reserve University professor of chemistry, plans to use funding from a special two-year, unsolicited grant for creativity from the National Science Foundation to prepare new conjugated polymers that feature novel chemical building blocks and inorganic elements. Such special plastics have potential uses in understanding how these new display devices work, and could lead to improvements in plastic display technologies.
