The new PlasticARM chip is only a concept though, so it’s going to be a few years before we see anything like this on a real device
Consumer electronics firms have put micro-controllers in almost everything, but the fact that chips are made out of silicon remains an issue at times. That’s a problem British chip design firm, ARM, is looking to solve with a new chip called PlasticARM. These bendable chips, unlike those we have on phones, smartwatches, etc. today, are made from plastics and can fit a variety of newer form factors.
