LG Display today unveiled the world’s first 12-inch high-definition stretchable display. The new technology allows you to stretch, bend and twist the display without any damage.
This is the industry’s first full-color RGB backlit display that allows you to stretch yourself by 20%. The density is 100 pixels per inch, while the manufacturer claims not only flexibility, but also high durability and reliability, which increase its potential for commercialization.
Based on a highly elastic film substrate made from special silicon used in contact lenses, this 12-inch display boasts rubber band-like flexibility, allowing it to stretch up to 14 inches.
This display uses a MicroLED light source with a pixel pitch of less than 40 µm, which provides a high level of durability and can withstand severe external influences. This display can withstand over 10,000 repetitive shape changes. The manufacturer does not talk about this, but it can be assumed that if you bend it in different ways, then the resource will be much larger.
LG Display said the display is easy to attach to a variety of curved surfaces, including skin, clothing, furniture, and cars.
“We will successfully complete this project to enhance the competitiveness of Korean display technologies,” said Soo-young Yoon, executive vice president and CTO of LG Display.
