developed by a team from Arizona State University and E-Ink (the company
that makes the technology for Amazon's Kindle and Sony's Reader). Jann
Kaminski and colleagues at ASU's [2]Flexible Display Center say the main
challenge is that most touch-screen technologies do not respond well to
being flexed. So they used an inductive screen, which relies on a
magnetized styluses to induce a field in a sensing layer at the back of
the display. The first adopters for the technology are likely to be the
US Army. Watch a [3]video of the device being tested."
