OLED Technology

Looks like everyone is jumping onto the flexible display bandwagon these days, with Sony giving the competition something to think about with its 2.5" OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) screen made from a glass substrate, enabling you to bend the screen casually. This wafer-thin display will probably find practical use inside futuristic, high-tech magazines as an advertisement channel or other social products such as cellphones. Organic TFT technology is utilized to keep the clarity intact despite measuring just 0.3mm thick. This flexi-OLED display has a resolution of 120 x 169 pixels and weighs a mere 1.5 grams. I guess exhibitions and conventions like in the future will use these in their flyers soon.

Look at the video and see how slim it is:

What a good invention isn't it? Before that, we only can see this gadget in the movies like Minority Report and many other movies that about the future right? Hmm...then I started to think, it must be cool to replace all the newspaper, magazines, and photo albums with this OLED screen. I can't wait to see this happen, in 5 years after now? 10 years? I don't know.....but I am expecting it. Do you ?
