Sony Shows Off 0.3mm-Thick OLED Display; Doesn't Get Much Thinner Than That

Sony's 11-inch, 3mm-thick XEL-1 OLED TV is OK, I guess. But sometimes I worry that it's just too thick. I mean, 3mm? Come on, Sony. Who do you think you're dealing with here? Luckily, it looks like Sony is working on a new 11-inch OLED, one that's 10 times thinner than its expensive predecessor.

With a 960x540 resolution, this panel has very similar specifications to the XEL-1, but it's just a mere 0.3mm thick. The as-yet-unnamed panel is clearly just proof that they're able to create such a skinny display, so don't look for it in Best Buy anytime soon-it'd probably set you back somewhere in the solid five figures-but it doesn't take a soothsayer to envision 50-inch OLED TVs hanging on your wall, making the photo frames hanging next to it look downright obese. Sounds good to me. Make it happen, Sony. [Impress via Engadget]

Minority Report scrolling personal ads and Total Recall wallscreens will be here in the foreseeable future... now they just need to be flexible like thin plastic and then I can buy my MediaSheet which can wirelessly obtain push and pull data for my morning commute.

Hurry up already. :)
