'[OT]:Whatever Next?'

I've just finished watching a a science program from DWTV about
Pottsdam University's research into organic LEDs.I believe they're
looking at ASIC versions as well.

Now their ultimate aim is to have a crumpable colour LED display and
have these as pocketable ebook displays that can be rolled up. I
can't wait for the PIC version to come out.

It'll put a new meaning to 'My PIC's gone up in smoke', I wonder if
the 18 series will be allowed in small quantities for personal use?

I've just read something similar about Light Emitting Plastics (LEP).
The big breakthrough lately is getting blue light, which means now
that the whole spectrum is covered. A lot of references to look up
if you Google for "Light Emitting Plastic". You wonder what will be
the products to come out of paper-thin flexible batteries and LEP

You can buy OLEDs (inside consumer products) today, in quantity.
Check your local car stereo store (shop), for example.

Color (colour) displays on cell phones / PDAs will
probably be first. The ebook is an elusive goal, personally (having
done some research on it a few years ago in detail for a client) I feel
a really usable and high volume product is still a number of years away,
mostly because of the display technology (need very low power for long
battery life and very high resolution to make it realistic to read an
entire book without eyestrain).

Just out of idle curiousity - are you aware of ZBD Displays, a UK company that's an spin-off from QinetiQ?

They've developed some LCDs based on zenith bistable technology that apparently retain the image without power, and have high contrast and resolution (although I don't know what real world numbers they attach to 'high').

If you're at all interested, I can send you a .pdf of an article about them that appeared in the internal QinetiQ magazine a couple of months back.

I'd appreciate a copy of the article, thanks. I try to keep reasonably
current on display
technology.

Another (totally different technology) that I've not actually seen yet is
LCRT technology,
which puts a lasing layer at the face of a conventional CRT. Developed in
the FSU, and
used for military and other high-performance displays. I wonder if any list
members,
possibly from that part of the world, could comment on how good these
actually are?

Could be some interesting results when they recycle that into bum paper
