These bendable wallpaper cameras are a flexible camera concept, created by researchers at Columbia University.
The cameras are essentially sheets that are flexible enough to bend and twist in a variety of shapes while still functioning as a usable photo-taking device. This could prove especially helpful for the security industry where flexible cameras would be in high demand due to their ability to wrap around curved objects while remaining functional. This can also potentially prevent gaps in security footage which has proven to be an issue in the past.
It is believed that curved cameras are the way of the future and these flexible sheet cameras are proving this prediction right while maximizing function and image quality.
