Short Bytes: Google has filed a new patent for a revolutionary tearable screen technology. This technology facilitates tearing a display screen, cutting it off and using it independently according to our needs. There are some inherent technologies which pave the way for this technology to become a reality.
According to Google’s new patent, a display screen can be torn off into multiple portions. And, each portion can display same or different content.
As you can see in the image below, the same dog which appears on the big screen, also appears on the torn screen. On top of that, the content adjusted itself according to its size. Similarly, on the same screen, different portions of the images can be cut-off and used independently.
As mentioned in the patent, there are multiple ways to detect a tear in a display. Its shape and size, for example, shape and size can be detected by a broken circuit along magnetic fasteners. Also, there will be a strain sensor installed in a tearable display which will sense separation of a part of a display.
Moreover, in the future, we are going to have foldable displays which we can roll like a paper. And, this technology of Google is surely going to make the things interesting
