Like a science fiction movie, we are soon going to have mobile phones, gadgets wearable on your wrist. Sony has unveiled it's ultra flexible TFT OLED display panel. The prototype was first shown in CES trade show 2009 and has undergone more than 4 years of research and development. This panel is just 80μm thick. Since it doesn't contain any hard driver the TFT panel can be wrapped about your finger.
The minimum bending radius is just 4 mm. Sony recently released  a video showing the display panel wrapped over a cylinder, while it's working.

  The panel has more colors and contrast ratio than it's competitors. In fact Sony is not alone there is other big brand Samsung also has shown it's flexible OLED screen prototype last year. Soon many other brands will jump in this hot field.


size : 4.1 inch wide
thickness: 80μm
resolution: 121 ppi (pixels per inch)
colors: 16,777,216
peak luminance: >100 cd/m2
contrast ratio: >1000:1

In future the sturdiness and flexibility of the display will bring ultra portable gadgets, OLED TVs and more.
