Since the displays are flexible and don't use glass they will be nearly unbreakable, meaning the next time you drop your phone your display isn't going to shatter. We've seen some crazy prototypes of paper-esque displays and see-though panels, but what what's likely to come to market are rounded displays that were not possible with traditional LCD or AMOLED panels. Flexible displays make things like watch phones and wearable computers a lot more practical, and as the technology progresses we will likely see more innovative applications as designers think outside the box.
