Chicago company creates bendable "wristband" screens

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Technology is getting a little more flexible.

A new type of screen is made to be twisted, bent and even rolled up.

A Chicago company is behind the wristband. The bendable display uses black and white e-paper technology which is thin, durable, and energy efficient.

It's rolling out the bendable screens next year as a new product line called the "wove band." Users will be able to wear it around their wrists while displaying things like the weather and news headlines.
