Yum yum, the time will come — the time when we can take our laptops into the bathtub. Sony has moved us one step closer to this with their new flexible, full-colour OLED. OLEDs are usually done on a glass substrate, but the new tech from Sony is done on plastic. The 2.5-inch prototype does up to 16.8 million colors, with a 120 x 169 resolution, is 0.3 mm thick and weighs 1.5 grams. Sony’s planning to spin out a bunch of new tiny televisions this year using the OLED tech, with the expectation of doing more thinner and lighter gadgets in the agreeably near future. I’ll take a waterproof word processor-cum-newspaper, please. Video after the jump. [GT]
