Posted by Categories: Misc. Tech


OLEDsOLED screens seem to be popping up everywhere. Televisions, cell phones, and even electric shavers. But now they are in your car?

This translates to less power consumption, which means longer battery life in portable devices. These OLEDs also last longer than typical LCDs, making them more practical. Currently, they are very expensive to make, but as they are included in more and more products, researchers will gain more experience with them and the price will come down.

i’ve seen these used in car cd players. its pretty nice, and anything that last longer is good.

I read an article about this technology.. They are attempting to make a small TV out of similar material which will, in turn, make a super-thin, super-flexible TV.  Crazy stuff….

I didnt know this was new tch. I have these about a year ago.  Maybe it will be in my car when i buy 1 in a few months :D

By the time I drive hopefully there will be some OLED in every car.
