Polyera announced the flexible display bracelet
The Polyera company announced Wove Band, the flexible display which can be wrapped up round a wrist. On development of the device 10 years left. It is expected that the product will arrive in bulk selling in the middle of 2016.
The majority of attempts to create flexible displays relied on materials traditional for electronics, such as the silicon besieged on plastic substrates. The similar approach allows to create products with the fixed bent screens. However fragility of layers of details does them unsuitable for use in products which should possess dynamic flexibility by which Wove Band is characterized, – is told in Polyera statement.
The Wove Band display differs from displays of other devices a little. Use of the firm Digital Fabric technology and a film on the basis of electronic ink allows the display to be in the included condition constantly.
How reports PC Magazine?, the device will be already available to developers in September. All the others can get a product not earlier than the middle of the next year.
Popularity of flexible displays grows, as the companies even more often use them in the products. A bright example of it is the Samsung Galaxy Edge smartphone. A difference only that users can independently bend the Wove Band display, and at the Samsung smartphone it is bent by the producer and fixed in one situation.
At the CES 2013 exhibition the Samsung company showed the flexible Youm display with bending and razgibaniye possibility in the opposite direction. One year later LG announced the display which can be braided in a tubule, without breaking its functionality.
Polyera says that not creation of the flexible display, and creation of the device which can be bent together with the electronic stuffing hidden in it was a main goal. Thus such device should be calculated on daily use.
At this stage Wove Band uses the black-and-white display. In future Polyera is going to apply the technology to OLED panels, having created polnotsvetny displays for multimedia devices.
