I was reading Make:’s Blog and I saw the entry on laser cutting wood to make it bendable (seeSNIJLAB). See here. I set out to see if it was possible to laser cut plexiglass in the same way. To my surprise it works pretty good! You can see for yourself the results.
I also created a 20″x3″ version in 1/8 red plexiglass. This took about 45minutes of cutting. You can see a video of how flexible it is.
