Toshiba introduces an interesting twist to flexible displays.
We've seen a few different flexible LCDs and each time we've talked about the possibilties when it comes to applying this technology to modern life. From electronic posters and maps to displays that you can roll up and stuff in a paper tube, most of our ideas focused storage or transportation.

At SID, the world's largest display conference, TechOn reports that Toshiba was showcasing a display that uses its flexibility as controls. Though it doesn’t look quite as flexible as say, HP's rollable display, the fact that you can bend to zoom in is pretty damn cool.
