Toshiba Develops OLED Television Wallpaper

Many of us are accustomed to watching TV on high-quality plasma and LCD screens, but we pay a severe price in energy inefficiency. Toshiba has come up with a solution to our energy woes: flexible OLED paper that doubles as a TV screen.

The paper, which is significantly more energy efficient than both LCD and plasma, uses light that has been redirected using a fine grating created by self-assembling nano-particles. In addition to projecting moving pictures, the paper could also project images. Toshiba’s paper could also be used to emit light — effectively eliminating the need for traditional lighting.

The television wallpaper is currently in the early stages of research, and is many years away from commercial production.
