LG to make giant rollable TVs by 2017

LG flexible screen The flexible screens are high resolution but paper-thin

The electronics company LG has announced the release of a paper-thin 18 inch TV panel that is so flexible it can be rolled into a 3cm diameter tube.

The TV was made using an incredibly hi-tech material to make it bendy instead of the usual plastic backing.

LG is confident it can make a larger 60 inch rollable TV by 2017.

Experts say flexible screens could see TVs used in more creative ways in the future.
