OLED Displays That Can Stretch Like Rubber

Researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed a new kind of OLED display that can stretch and deform like rubber. The team demonstrated a face-shaped display showing changing expressions, and a spherical screen to show weather information. The inventor hopes that in the future they will be able to apply this technology to completely spherical or moving displays. They were produced by spraying a layer of carbon nanotubes with a fluoro-rubber compound to produce a stretchy, conductive material. The displays are thinner than plasma and LCD equivalents, and consume very little power.
