Remember those flexible AMOLED displays we told you Samsung was busy putting into production this year? Well, we may have found the battery that could soon power them. Created by the masterminds at the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Professor Keon Jae Lee and friends are showing off their flexible lithium-ion batteries that can bend and warp, without affecting the battery’s performance in any way. Demonstrated in the below video, you can see for yourselves the fruits of their labor.

While this technology may be a sign of things to come, the real appeal of flexible displays and batteries aren’t phones that roll up into your pockets, but components that are less likely to break or explode in extreme situations. Bring it on, OEM’s.
