The shift towards flexible displays is becoming more apparent in many ways, which the 'FlexCase' looks to make even more of a reality. Developed by researchers at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, the 'FlexCase' is designed in partnership with Microsoft.

So much more than just a smartphone case, the 'FlexCase' is designed to add an additional ePaper display onto the size of a smartphone. This can be used in a variety of ways to help expand the existing functionality of handheld devices ranging from map navigation, to mapping different keystrokes and movements.

Although only in prototype phases as of late, the 'FlexCase' shows promise for how flexible displays can be incorporated into existing product lineups.
