Canon Patent For Flexible And Expandable LCD Screen For DSLR And MILC

Curious Canon patent for a flexible and expandable LCD screen for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The LCD screen is expanded by rotating a movable grid. According to patent drawings, the technology appears to apply both for DSLRs and compact/mirrorless cameras. The machine translated patent literature seems to suggest that you may have a larger monitor just when you need it.
