Recently, however, engineers have begun developing bendable displays. So how do these work, and what do they mean for the future? Traditional liquid crystal display screens (LCDs) use light emitting diodes (LEDs). These are made up of a sandwich of two types of semi-conducting material, one rich in electrons, and one poor in electrons. When electricity is passed across the semi-conductor sandwich, electrons flow from the…
