Sony / Flexible OELD Display

At CEATEC JAPAN 2009, Sony presented “flexible organic EL displays driven by organic TFTs,” along with various product concepts, including a Walkman with a flexible organic EL display. “Flexible organic EL displays driven by organic TFTs” were achieved using technology that integrates organic thin-film transistors and organic EL elements on a plastic film. These displays are thin and light, and they can bend.

The display exhibited at CEATEC was a 2.5 inch model with 160 x 120 pixels, giving a resolution of 80 ppi, yet with a thickness of only 0.2mm. This product, which at first glance looks like a wristwatch, is a Walkman concept, suggested by Sony as a way of using flexible organic EL displays. The thin, light, soft display creates a totally new shape for the Walkman. The soft body is made of plastic derived from inedible vegetable matter. The seamless display, which fits the wrist perfectly, is used to show graphics. In addition, as other concepts using flexible organic EL displays, Sony presented innovative designs for its VAIO notebook PC and Reader e-book device.
