Flexpeaker: Paper-Thin Speakers Could Mean Your E-Newspaper Might One Day Read Itself to You

Developed by Taiwan’s ITRI, fleXpeaker technology produces arrays of tiny speakers that can be joined together to make high-quality speakers of almost any size – meaning they could be the perfect companion for that unlimited-size OLED display you just covered your entire house with.
