A UK-based star-up called R&D Core developed a new touch-display technology that is especially suited for flexible display. The company is collaborating with Plastic Logic to test the new technology.

R&D Core's Digital Resistive Area Sensing (DRAS) is placed behind the display and responds to pressure. This has several advantages - it works with insulating materials (such as globes), it is less prone to breakage and it is more suitable for flexible displays. Last year we reported on similar technology from Peratech.
