OLED Tie – small flexible screens coming to a piece of clothing near you soon?

OLED Tie. I’m trying to work out why you’d want to wear a tie with an embedded OLED screen on it…um…maybe to sell advertising space? Or to broadcast your need for a mate? Anyhoo, it’s an interesting idea and who knows where it might lead. MP3 playing socks?

 In the future, applications of flexible display will be expanded to our daily life ranging from a tie, a hat, a wallet and other small lifestyle products. ETRI demonstrated its flexible OLED during Next Generation Computing Show 2007 in Seoul. Korea. According to ETRI, this flexible display can be available at affordable price by using ‘Roll-to-Roll’ production method. It is ultra thin and light and offers outstanding natural color reproduction. It is also claimed to consume less power.

  • Why not make a tie that has video screens that dance to music, winamp style. If you use this idea you pay me just $100 for coming up with the invention. That's is a cash idea for you.
