AMOLED Interfaces: Death to All Devices

#sxsw #DieDevices


Digital screens are now as thin as paper, as we often wished for and ultimately expected. These paper-thin displays are referred to as AMOLED and are currently used in some mobile devices and televisions. In this presentation, I will examine the brief history of flexible screens, discuss their current use in the context of “device disappearance” and explore new uses, interfaces and possible design patterns for this technology in the near future.
