TCL CSoT suggests a new hinged-pixel design for stretchable displays

TCL CSoT says that it has developed a new hinged-pixel design that can enable uniform stretchable displays.

The idea is to connect adjacent pixels with flexible hinges, so that when the display is stretched, the hinges make sure the pixels retain a fixed distance between them. The company says that this design can remain uniform for up to 40% expansion.

It is not clear whether the company is actually proposing to use such a design with OLED displays, it could be more relevant to microLED displays in which each pixel is produced individually. In any case, this seems to be an innovative idea.
