Let’s hear it for flexibility…

Two interesting technologies have just been announced in the flexible-computing arena. First (via engadget) is NEC’s announcement of their Organic Radical Battery, a 300-micron thick flexible battery with an energy density of about 1 mWh/cm2 and recharge time of just 30 seconds. Then throw in Plastic Logic‘s announcement of a 10″ diagonal SVGA E-Ink display (4-level greyscale) that’s both flexible and less than 0.4mm thick. (Thanks to Kurt for the links!)
