In the near future, you may be able to cancel your cell phone insurance that covers cracked screens from dropping the darned thing. Why? Your new phone may not have any glass to break.
Believe it or not, your next gadget is probably going to have a flexible screen. No, you probably won’t be able to wrap your phone around your body, which sadly precludes a whole bunch of really awesome/gross pranks. That’s not for years, possibly decades.
How soon for the phone? Perhaps by the end of this year.
