The idea displayed in the video does not appear all that useful, however TCL pictures utilizing the tech in other items, such as rollaway Televisions, curved screens, and collapsible screens.
A digital, conceptual animation reveals the extremely versatile screen linked to 2 spring-loaded rollers on either side, permitting users to open the practically paper-thin tablet like they would an ancient scroll– not joking (video above).
