Flexible CD introduced

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 19 Mar 2002 1:42

German company flexstrom, a subsdiary of Bertelsmann Arvato, introduced a flexible CD at CeBIT yesterday. Flexible CD means that it is actually physically flexible, you can roll it up, etc. Disc is also lightweight, cheaper to produce than regular CD, faster to produce than regular CD and has the exact same storage features that regular CD has.
Only real nag that the flexCD has is the fact that it requires plastic adapter when played in regular CD player -- piece of plastic on top and under the flexCD. But I can easily imagine that the product will attract interest from direct marketing people -- imagine the savings AOL could achieve when they send out their weekly 100,000,000,000,000,000 promotional CDs to customers. Company also said that the technology can be extended to DVD discs as well, but didn't mention about any plans for flexDVD.
