1mm Thick Flexible Plasma Display in the Works

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  October 4, 2007


At this week’s CEATEC show in Japan, Shinoda Plasma Corp. showed off a prototype of a new plasma-based screen that’s only 1-millimeter thick.

Shinoda Thin Plasma Prototype

By using an array of plasma “tubes” aligned between film electrodes, they’re not only able to keep the display super slim, but the display can actually be bent. While it might not be immediately evident from the photo, the image on the big screen shows the flexibility of the screen material up close.

In addition, plasma tube technology is designed to seamlessly stitch together small unit pieces to construct larger displays. So for instance, multiple 1-meter square base unit could be combined into a larger 1 x 2 or 2 x 3-meter display without retooling.

At this point, the technology is in the very early stages of development, but if they can manage to gear up for production, it could find its way to market in the next 5 to 10 years.
