Kodak shows off its flexible OLED prototype underwater

Moisture-proof OLED prototype opens up a world of opportunities for underwater displays

Kodak has released images of a prototype flexible OLED screen that is able to work while submerged in water. OLED displays are generally highly sensitive to moisture.

The pictures are available on Kodak's PluggedIn blog. The images show the OLED sheet suspended in a beaker of water, with plastic toy characters watching the image of a fish displayed on the OLED screen.

No information is currently available on how the OLED screen was successfully modified to work underwater, but the innovation opens up a new range of possibilities for the low-cost display technology.

Campbell, thanks for picking up this story. The Kodak OLED R&D team is developing new encapsulation technology to work with flexible OLED's. While Kodak is not specifically investigating or targeting any underwater applications at this time, the team thought it would be interesting (and fun)to conduct our "Fish Tank" test.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
