Sony made recent headlines when it offered the first real commercial OLED (organic light emitting diode) commercial display product.  The 11" wide screen is a 3 mm thick, and it only represents the beginning.  Now the company is going to a thinner, flexible platform.

CEO Howard Stringer recently demonstrated a foldable display screen that is 0.2 mm thick. Sony is not holding back on its vision of future content consumption on displays that will be flexible, transparent and able to be read in sunlight.

Meanwhile, researchers around the world continue to advance the field of carbon-based or 'organic' electronics beyond thin film solar, OLEDs, fuel cells and batteries. IBM believes we might see 'spray on' solar within five year!
