Watch with OLED strip in wristband for displaying scrolling text
  [vote for,

The watch would have a wristband that has an embedded flexible OLED screen in it that can display scrolling text so that the watch can be used like a RSS news reader, or maybe even an e-reader, displaying whole books as one continous scrolling like of text of variable speed.

The watch body itself can either have a seperate rigid screen that is a bit wider but shorter, or it can be just a continuation of the flexible wristband screen on top of the processor unit. The watch would have wifi/3G connectivity to update rss feeds or download e-books.

Displaying the text on the wristband rather than just a watch face should aid in readability of scrolling text. You'd probably view the OLED strip by looking at the back of your wrist, holding the wristband horizontally — im not sure how comfortable that would be though — hopefully those around you on the bus/train wouldn't think that you are contemplating cutting yourself! :-)

       Yay! Welcome to the HB!   

       Good news: it would be a cool gadget.   

       Bad news: people are already working on this. Google "OLED wristband". It's always a goog idea to Goodle before posting...

       I wouldn't think of omitting to not make such an assumption.

       Is that a euphemism?

       I was thinking it might be the female equivalent of "He's gone to South Shields and taken the teaspoons with him."
