Wrap-around smartphones and roll-up computer tablets could soon be coming to a store near you. A British electronics firm has created a plastic transistor. That could make possible a host of devices with flexible electronic displays.

To illustrate the possibilities, Plastic Logic showed off a flexible smartwatch with its new transistors at the Society for Information Display meeting last week in San Diego, Calif.

Like other digital displays, a flat plane of transistors sits underneath the light...
