New OLED manufacturing process from GE means OLEDs are actually going to be practical soon


OLEDs, the little successors to LEDs that are made of the stem cells of baby unicorns, are about to get a lot cheaper to manufacture.

GE has found a way to make the OLEDs in a roll-to-roll fashion, meaning in essence making them affordable. Really affordable. In theory, the super-low-power OLEDs could be almost disposable, and offer more realistic light and color than standard LEDs.

This is good news, as now we can look forward to OLED laptops, cellphones, and things that haven’t even been thought of yet.
