Forty-one years have passed since LCD panels came onto the market, and now for the first time Sharp Corporation has developed a free-form LCD that can be made into any shape.

Unlike conventional ones, these new LCD panels have refined the design to have a curved form or holes.

Sharp aims to use the new technology for speedometers' instrument panels by 2017.

The company has a patent on the technology and wants to use it also in frame-less smartphones and in wearable appliances that have a round screen.
