Imagine a foldable device which is cheap enough to throw away when you’re bored of it. This concept by Ilshat Garipov is just that.

Far fetched? Nope, scientists have pulled out all stops for research into ‘nanoparticles’. A nano particle isn’t some new clever technology, but quite simply a particle which is between 100 and 2500 nanometers in size. So when ‘nanoparticle’ is used, what’s meant is ‘very small technology’; and not just screens – anti-scratch coatings, ultraviolet filters and aerosols are all nanoparticles.

Nanoparticle screens though are definitely the most interesting. This very possible concept is as thick as a piece of cardboard and can be virtually any size. It’s powered by nanoparticles which convert light into electricity.

Last year we wrote about the quantum dot display currently in development which can be printed onto almost anything and are impossibly thin. And although those screens are unlikely to be cheap the same characteristics can be achieved.
