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.
Chip in a few dollars a month to help support independent cleantech coverage that helps to accelerate the cleantech revolution!
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.
