  1. Flexible Screens Sean Ouye Sec 08

  2. Samsung Flexible Display(0:45) • YOUM brand name. • OLED technology • Made of plastic • No glass involved • The phone will not shatter if dropped. • Phone can bend back and forth

  3. Background • Nicholas Sheridon • The father of E-paper • Gyricon • The ability to display images onto a flexible background and re-use that same material. • Cost-inefficient • Gyricon and E-paper never had much success, but was on the right track.

  4. OLED Technology • Organic Light-Emitting Diode • Similar to LED, but produce more natural light. • More energy efficient and smaller. • Can be placed on plastic.

  5. OLED’s and Flexible Screens • OLED’s allow for curved edges. • More room is available for content. • OLED’s allow for screens to be made of materials other than glass. • LED’s need a glass support for the backlight. Less efficient than OLED’s.

  6. Advantages/Disadvantages

  7. Disadvantages • Technology isn’t good enough to produce a finished product. • Melting problems • Materials are expensive • Materials are hard to find and develop • Need to create a demand

  8. Prototypes • LG • Nokia • Toshiba • Sony • Samsung

  9. Vision of the Near Future • Flexible screens benefit more than just phone technology. • Might become an essential part in our everyday lives. • OLED’s can be placed anywhere! • Buildings • Pillars • Car windshields • Clothes
