Bending your ear

LG seems to be doing well for itself, as exemplified by its new HQ in Seoul (p26). This success could be attributed to its development, post-war, of a chemicals and electricals division, which in the silicon age has propelled it to the forefront of the tech industry. So it’s no surprise to see its new range of flexible OLED panels. Luflex, only 0.4mm thick can be twisted and bent into a 30mm radius without any loss of functionality.

Try and mass-produce that!
