Holy frickin' monkey! I hope this is a big step in display technology.

I guess I'm most surprised at how many colors it has. Hot damn.

I agree. however, the resolution of OLED just isnt up to par with current HD technology.

I must admit, the bent oled screen is pretty cool. And the color gamut it offers (16.7million) thats alot in such a small package.

The quality of the photo looks pretty good, but there are a lot of lines running completely through the picture. I wonder if that is simply because the "screen" is being bent? Sort of like the glowing effect you see when you touch an LCD screen.

Are these little screens fairly cheap to produce?

Haha. I doubt it.

I'm curious about how it's powered.

Sony is the first company to show off 24-bit color flexible OLED. It features a brightness of "above" 1000:1, is 2.5-inch large with a resolution of 160 x 120 pixels. It can easily be bent, as it is just 0.3 mm thick. Just do not expect this technology to hit retail any time soon.

brightness is 1000:1? That's a new one to me... I'm assuming that means contrast ratio, brightness is measured in cd/m2
Otherwise just to make sure that guys understand that we won't see this sort of technology for a long time now. If they could make screens like that last for longer than a day (exaggeration) then we would have had it for a long time now.

I could have sworn I read something in Wired or engadget that said these were already on the market.

A movie you hate!

I'd put Lenny Kravitz on my toilet paper. Maybe Jack Thompson. Or select political figureheads. :D Shit*, that could be a series!

**after-the-fact it was indeed intended

I thought it had been the issue with the number of colors with these not the lifespan... Maybe I was thinking of another bendable display technology.

I'd love to have a wide plastic screen I could stick across my back window in my cruiser to tell people to back off (or laugh at my stuck friends in the last mud hole I just made it through ;) Hooked up to my pda phone of course
