A Japanese startup says it has developed bendable light-emitting diode (LED) screen technology that could change the way information is presented.

On December 8, PI-Crystal, a start-up from the University of Tokyo, said the LED panels it developed could bend freely like curtains.

PI-Crystal, in cooperation with display development company Organo-Circuit, has developed a technology that makes high-precision transistors uniformly on the plane of an organic semiconductor. They make displays by placing substrates, transistors and LED chips on resin films.

"We plan to have the LED panel as a fluttering display for video or still photography next spring," said Junichi Takeya, chief technology officer of the two companies and a professor of materials science at the University of Tokyo.

The newly developed LED screen consumes less than one-tenth the power and costs of existing displays.

According to PI-Crystal representatives said the new led display weighs less than 1 kg per square meter.

As digital signages continue to grow in demand at airports, stations and elsewhere, PI-Crystal is trying to commercialize flexible LED panels in the next two to three years.
