CES 2010: Samsung Shows Off Laptop with Transparent/Invisible OLED Screen

COk, this just looks cool. This is a prototype 14″ laptop from Samsung showing off a 40% transparent OLED screen. Yes, you can actually see a hand through behind the screen.

Sure, it’s amazing to look at, but I don’t know if I’d want one – I think I’d get easily distracted by what’s behind the screen instead of focusing on what’s on the screen. Now, what would be great is if you could quickly change the opacity with a button and/or OS control.

Samsung shows off a 82″ OLED TV with Backlight

At CES this year, Sony showed off their 1st OLED (Organic LED) TV that will go on sale, except it was a puny 11″ screen. It was a sweet looking TV though at 3mm thick and with a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. But who wants 11″ of OLED when they can get 50″ of Plasma for the same price?

Now Samsung just showed off an 82″ OLED with backlighting. We may even start seeing some more reasonably sized screens coming to stores soon as well. Essentially, it’s not a question of technology but of economics – scale and cost.

Sony Presents Thinner “Ultra Thin” OLED Display

Recently, at the Display 2008 expo trade show in Japan, Sony released an new “ultra-thin” OLED that is only 2mm thick. In addition Sony showed the newest version of the 11″ XEL-1 which is the world’s first mass-produced OLED TV. This latest version measures only .3mm in thickness which is better than the current model’s bulky 1.4mm.

Not about to go into commercial production, but an even thinner 3.5-inch prototype display was shown off that measures a mere 0.2mm (0.008in) and features a 320 x 220 pixel resolution.
