The Chinese company arranged for several spectators at the 2018 final between France and Croatia on Sunday to wear top hats equipped with its flexible display broadcasting the soccer final live.

The Fifa World Cup in Russia saw the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) used for the first time in a final to award France a 38th-minute penalty. But this is not the only innovation to emerge from the worldwide event, as Shenzhen-based ultra-thin flexible display maker Royole also proved that watching soccer games on goods such as hats and clothes is now a reality.

The Chinese company arranged for several spectators at the 2018 final between France and Croatia on Sunday to wear top hats equipped with its flexible display broadcasting the soccer final live. The flexible sensor technology incorporates a high-definition 2K resolution bended display which streams content from a user’s mobile phone or tablet.
