Ever heard of organic light-emitting diodes (OLED)?
Or of it being used in the automotive industry?
I hadn’t either until now. So, what is OLED?
The scientific version goes like this: An organic
light-emitting diode (OLED) is a light-emitting
diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent
layer is a film of organic compound which emits light
in response to an electric current. This layer of
organic semiconductor is situated between two
electrodes; typically, at least one of these
electrodes is transparent. OLEDs are used to create
digital displays in devices such as television
screens, computer monitors, portable systems such
as mobile phones, handheld game consoles and PDAs.
Car nuts, like myself, simply that to: it’s neat!
Just look at the video to see what these critters
can do on an Audi.
Think about it; you could scare drunks sober,
cause other drivers to watch your rear end instead
of the road, and be a hero to your kids if these
things go into production cars. At least for a
little while until they became commonplace.
Comments are always welcome.
