With the trend in high tech electronics to be as thin as possible, researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed an ultra-thin flexible LED display that has exciting possibilities. The display can show numbers or images and conforms directly to the body, making it ideal for health monitors. The e-skin might eventually replace handheld devices altogether as a new way to communicate our emotions or measure stress. ~Doug
