Roll up TV is a developing technology, in which a television screen or computer display is modified to display on a paper thin surface that can be rolled up and stored. The display uses organic LED (OLED) technology, which is highly energy efficient without sacrificing image quality.[1] The electroluminescent and photoconductive properties of the thin film of organic chemicals a fraction of an inch thick, turn an electronic signal into a television picture.[2] Flexible roll up displays are not yet available in the consumer market.[3]
