Just One Word: Plastics

Think of computer chips as hard, brittle things? That idea will seem quaint in the future: Epson Develops the World's First Flexible TFT SRAM

"Plastic chips", as I like to call them, are just getting out of the lab, but I think they will be common place within a decade. This will allow the creation of all sorts of cool consumer goods than can fold, be rolled up and other uses we haven't thought of, although I would first like to see an iPod nano that won't scratch so easily.
