The bending (or twisting as you suggest) is really independent of the screen itself, so if it was really that useful you could develop a device that you could bend or twist to control a normal computer (with normal monitor).
As for the zooming in and out effect, it would be just as easy (and cheaper) to just put some buttons on the edges of the screen. You would apply pressure as if you are bending the screen and it would be detected without having to actually deform the screen itself.
