Flexible OLED Wrist Display Unveiled at CES

OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology is still new, but the Universal Display Corporation has already developed a flexible OLED wristband prototype. The prototype, which is supported by the US Department of Defense, is currently on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

There are numerous advantages to using OLEDs instead of LEDs: they’re thinner, more energy efficient, and can be produced using an inkjet printer.

The Universal Display Corporation’s 4-inch metal foil display may one day be used in a device with 3G HSDPA capability. Since the technology is sponsored by the DoD, military types will have first access, but the displays could one day be part of a new generation of wearable communication devices.
