CYNORA's latest material specification were presented in May 2018 - with a CIEy of 0.14, EQE of 20% and a lifetime of 20 hours LT97 at 700 nits. Cynora expects to have blue material in the mass production by 2020, and when its deep-blue material is ready it will start to develop the less challenging highly efficient green and red materials. Last month we have interviewed Cynora's CMO Dr. Andreas Haldi - who talked about TADF, lifetime, color points and more.

A team at Queen's University Human Media Lab in Canada developed a new concept device called MagicScroll that features a rollable display wrapped around a cylinder that can be rolled to scroll the information. The display can also be rolled up to act like a regular tablet.
