Funny you should mention that, a number of years ago I got to know a guy
who worked in a lab that was researching organic polymer-based
electronics, which lets you build things like screens and keyboards that
can be rolled up or folded and put into your pocket. It was still
experimental technology at the time, though, and I'm not expecting it to
be publicly available anytime soon. But the day may come when your
smartphone *can* literally have a 22" monitor (that folds into a pocket
sized card).


Famous last words: I wonder what will happen if I do *this*...
