Wrist-worn OLED screen finds its way to CES

The future has been painted with computers strapped to our wrists but one device being showcased at CES looks like it might have achieved it.

We’ve all seen visions of the future with utopian (and sometimes dystopian) paradises painting worlds that feature idealised techno-centric devices attached to our arms, hands, or heads.

Believe it or not, that is now closer to being a relative then ever before.

Based off of an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) and similar to a new breed of TV’s set to be released within the next year, the Universal Display Corporation have built a 4 inch flexible OLED screen that’s meant to be worn on the wrist.

Built with support from the US Department of Defense, the prototype is currently too fragile to be actually taken out into the field and operated on. However, the design and concept works with a likelihood that it finds its way onto US soldiers in the near future.
