1. A flexible display comprising:

  • (a) a plurality of light emitting rigid chixels affixed to a flexible substrate, said plurality of light emitting rigid chixels collectively providing a visible display, said flexible display having both vertical and horizontal directions defined in the plane of said visible display;

    (b) each of said plurality of light emitting rigid chixels comprising;

    i. a plurality of light emitting pixels affixed to a rigid substrate, said rigid substrate having a non-functional edge and an adjacent region devoid of any conductor;

    ii. said plurality of light emitting pixels arranged upon said rigid substrate to provide a spaced array of pixels providing a plurality of substantially equal first pixel gaps between adjacent light emitting pixels in a vertical direction;

    (c) said plurality of light emitting rigid chixels arranged upon said flexible substrate to provide a spaced array of chixels, said spaced array of chixels providing a plurality of substantially equal second pixel gaps disposed across said non-functional edges between adjacent light emitting chixels in both vertical and horizontal directions;

    (d) further characterized in that each of said plurality of first pixel gaps is substantially equal to each of said plurality of second pixel gaps across said flexible display.
