Bunnie Studios was at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose, and saw a presentation where a Sony XEL-1 OLED TV was torn down live. It's a sweet piece of technology, the crispest screen they'd ever seen.

Thats a lot of ribbons.
1,000,000 : 1 contrast ratio, too bad this thing is like 10k :(.
For a new tech though, this is looking awesome. When plasma came out, those TV's were super high priced as well. These things will come down in price and in 10 years people won't give a damn about LCD or Plasma. I wish I could play my PS3 on a 40 inch OLED screen now but, at least this is a taste of what's to come in the future.
10k? It's only $2,500! http://www.sonystyle.com/we... I bet you'll run out and buy one now ;)
Not bad, last time I checked the MSRP it was 10k for the prototype, but no one wants to justify spending $2500 for 11 inches :(.
they could have given it to me :(
It's only an 11" screen lol.
New technology. Next year it'll be twice that size, though it may not be half the cost.
the guy said he didnt watch t.v., just geeked about the innards
am i the only one that thinks this looks ugly
I wont one of these babys
That is a cool piece of tech. Imagine having a 32 inch one of those for playing video games on, it would make my 32 inch sammy look like an early black and white tv :-P. OLED looks like the way of the future though. They will be huge and not as expensive in a few years i am sure.
Millions have recently been pumped into big screen LCD's. It's very doubtful that we will ever see a 50+ inch OLED. :(
If the cost of manufacture comes down and the technology can scale that far we will see it. Technology always moves forward. Your post reminds me of when Bill Gates said we'd never need more than 640k on our PeeCees.
If Sony's name wasn't on it, would you change your opinion? @MorganX: Haha. 640k. nice.
