Unraveling Flexible OLED Displays for Wearable Computing

Flexible OLED display technologies are steadily reaching maturity levels where they will soon have the ability to significantly influence the design of wearable computers. We discuss the characteristics and constraints of flexible OLED displays. We propose design concepts incorporating flexible display technology in wearable computers and discuss the impact flexible displays will have on issues such as form factors, user interfaces application design, etc.
