Rubbery OLED promises really freaky displays


A layer of carbon nanotubes, some flouro-rubber, and some electricity are all you need to make a wacky little OLED that can conform to almost any surface. Tokyo researchers have created 100 square centimeters of this material to create at total of 256 monochrome pixels but better versions are on the way.

“In the future, displays that once had to be flat can be made spherical, or even moving,” says Takao Someya, professor of electronic engineering at the University of Tokyo. “A human-shaped display could be used to show medical diagnosis data, and there are various other applications.”

I’ll say.
