OLED Light with Touch Interface

OLED Light with Touch Interface

The German Fraunhofer Institute IPMS developed an OLED light source with touch interface.
Aside from displays, OLED technology is also getting a lot of attention in light source development. As OLED is a cold light source it is safe to touch. The Fraunhofer Institute took this property and turned it into a feature to control the OLED light.

Switching and dimming the light could be easily controlled by a hand movement, which overcomes the traditional controller function.
The cool thing about this Touch OLED light is that the OLED itself is used to read the hand movements. There is no additional layer necessary for the touch interface.
I wonder if the same technology can be used for OLED displays. If you can use the display OLEDs also for reading the touch information future touch screens would get slimmer and cheaper.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
