  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
