Sony Rollable Colour OLED Display

Sony has created an amazing looking rollable colour OLED display. The ultra thin screen measures 80μm in thickness and measures 4.1 inches diagonal.

The impressive part of the screen is that it can roll around a pen (demonstrated below in video) while the video is moving. Although the video isn’t of the highest quality, it certainly isn’t bad by any means and certainly shows where technology could be heading in the future.

The 80μm screen sits on a flexible 20μm thick substrate that has no rigid driver chips. This allows it to be as flexible as seen in the video. The screen can be rolled up on a 4mm radius.

The screen seen in the image above and video below has a resolution of 432 x 240 and supports 16 million colours. It has a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 100 nits brightness.

We are not sure yet what product Sony intend to use the rollable OLED screen in, but we suspect if it does launch that some concepts such as pen computers with rollout screens, or perhaps small eReaders with roll out screens could be one application.

It isn’t clear how much it is to produce a screen like this in terms of bringing it to market. I expect it wont be cheap though.
