I forgot to post that up after seeing it. It's wild where technology is going these days. I know a guy who was paid millions for something called the Video Vest, I think.

The thing in Minority report is based off planned products years before hand. Flexible LCD, Digital paper, Organic light emitting plastics, have all bee proposed, and flexible digital paper and Light emitting plastics fro this sort of product have been in development for years.

The big hassle with making something that rolls up, is that over times they degrade and don't want to roll straight, go stiff and crack etc etc. They could eventually make this, hopefully without having to resort to a flawless lattice of materials which would be resistant to deterioration over an very long time.
