COMPUTER screens you can roll up and put in your pocket....
A Huddersfield professor of nanotechnology is attempting to turn the theory into reality in a groundbreaking project which could allow people to carry bigger screens in their pockets than they can at present.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology involve working with matter on an ultra-small scale.
The University of Huddersfield has just been awarded £1m by the Government as part of an £18m grant to industry and research facilities around the country to work on a number of groundbreaking ideas.
The university's lead researcher in the field, Professor Liam Blunt, commented: "These products are the very latest thing from what are very new, very hi-tech industrial sectors."
He said there were a wide variety of applications for the technology.
He said: "The idea is that ultimately instead of having a laptop with a fixed screen, you will have a keyboard with a piece of flexible plastic that you can roll up and put in your pocket."
"Then when you need it, you'd open it, plug it in and away you'd go."
