Futaba Flexible OLED: Are Flexible Watches & Smartphones Coming?

by Range

The current crop of smartwatches are a bit lackluster in my opinion, especially when it comes to their displays. Maybe the Futaba flexible OLED screen on display at this year’s CEATEC show will change this. This is basically a concept watch that uses a video display wrapped around your wrist.

With the right manufacturing process, OLEDs can be surprisingly flexible, which is a must if you’re trying to create a watch that has a screen which wraps around your wrist. The current display has a 256 × 65 pixel resolution on its 3.5-inch display, and the entire watch is 0.22 mm thick. Beat that, Apple!

This prototype watch seems to get its power and data from an external circuit board. How this would be integrated into an actual watch remains uncertain. Also, someone needs to tell Futaba that the case they set this into doesn’t look very cool. A bit of styling goes a long way. Maybe they should partner up with some of the TokyoFlash watch designers next time.
