Allow me to be a complete idiot and (selectively) quote myself. Back in the days, I did thesis work on organic semiconductors. Yeah, we came up with some nice syntheses and stuff like that, but to be honest, at the end of the day we did not have much to show the world. So we speculated a little on the outlook for future applications.

Yours truly (2004):
“Some potential benefits [of organic vs inorganic semiconductors] are […]
Flexibility. Inorganic semiconductors are terribly stiff and therefore useless for flexible devices. Many organic semiconductors are on the other hand quite flexible, making devices such as plastic color displays realizable.”
