UCLA engineering researchers have created the first fully stretchable OLED display. While this news may seem a little too scientific for our general reading audience, it could actually mean big news for the future of electronic devices.
Think about it. If an OLED display can bend and flex, then it could be rolled up and stored in our pockets or even implanted in our skin for medical purposes. Can you imagine what our smartphones, tablets or even TVs could look like if they could be expanded, shrunk or otherwise altered thanks to their flexibility?
While we may still be a little ways off from seeing the benefits of this new technology, it’s definitely a start. UCLA’s new OLED can currently stretch by as much as 45 percent.
