New OLED display

Thursday, February 10, 2011


One of the main advantages of OLED is that it can be flexible—so flexible, in fact, that it can be wrapped around a pencil. Taking 2007’s .3mm prototype Sony’s made a new one just 80μm-thick.

That’s about ten times the size of a red blood cell, or just a tiny bit thinner than a single hair. The whole OLED measures 4.1-inches in size, and has a 432 x 240 resolution and a contrast ratio of under 1,000:1.
It’s another world first, boasting that it’s the first time an OLED panel can still stream video while being rolled up (around a cylinder with a 4mm radius) and stretched. Even though technology is far from perfect yet, but it still looks pretty awesome.

Wow! That is really cool!

Ya, all those lines being displayed are rows of pixels that have stuck because of damage from rolling.

Not perfect, but stupid cool.
