this might not be a revolution in performance or features, but it could well be used to make some very, very durable electronics.
Definitely. The oppurtunities that will be available to us when we're not bound by the restrictions that a non-flexible board imposes will be immense IMO. You can gain a lot of surface area by making a flat circuit board into something more rounded.
Think of a tennis ball shaped circuit board, with critical components protected on the inside and a flexible OLED screen on the outside. A small monitor that could be potentially dropped and thrown around without the fear of damage! The possibilities are mind-blowing!
But I think the whole Memristor technology thing is even more amazing.
