Never struggle moving a large TV again.
Though LG only very recently announced that they had developed a working rollable television, it appears as though the demo is closer to finding its way into your home than previously thought.
A video (which you can see below) showing the 18-inch flexible television in action leaked on YouTube, and you might just be surprised at how well it works.

What good is this in everyday life to the average person ? It may be cutting edge in terms of technology but i can't see a real purpose for it.

I just see this as a stepping stone on the path to having cheaper and even more ubiquitous displays for more mundane uses. You'll probably see them showing video ads along with route info on buses and subway cars, and inserted into other places where printed vinyl panels were previously used to convey information.
Technology is still cool. But stuff like restaurant or vending machine menus along with a constant bombardment of ads while waiting at a bus stop seems much more likely than not.
