Brainstorm: Flexible displays

hey all, this is in relation to the samsung prototype reported on earlier today: http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/9/3855960/samsung-flexible-oled-phone-prototype-hands-on for those who missed it.

dante isn't quite sure of the utility of such a feature, so let's see if we can come up with some ideas! initial thoughts of my own:

- app shortcut icons that you can swipe in from the side to open (similar to the W8 side-swipe mechanism, but more extensible)

- notification icons, functioning the same as above

- scroll bars for applications that would benefit from this, e.g. web browser, contacts

this all assumes that the prototype is the be-all & end-all for flexible screens, which isn't likely. if you have an idea that requires a bit more bend, feel free to drop it in.
