Flexible OLEDs, or flexible organic light-emitting diode (FOLED), is essentially a type of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) that incorporates a flexible plastic substrate on which the electroluminescent organic semiconductor is deposited. This means you’re able to bend or roll the device while it is still operating, and some smartphones today already use this technology. Designer Abdelrahman Shaapan incorporated this into a TV set.
The bezel-less display can go from curved to flat in seconds at the push of a button, while speakers are built into the stand itself. Unlike standard OLEDs, which are normally fabricated on a glass substrate, but by replacing glass with a flexible plastic such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), FOLEDs can be made both bendable and lightweight. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on when we’ll see an actual TV set like this, but since the technology exists, it could be as soon as this year.
