The Fraunhofer demonstrate new ultra-thin flexible transparent OLED lighting panels

The Fraunhofer FEP is demonstrating their new full-plastic OLED lighting panels at LOPEC 2016. In the video below, you can see Fraunhofer's new transparent flexible OLED tiles.

The most interesting demonstrator is the "night fly", which was developed as part of the Flex+ project. Those OLEDs (also flexible and transparent) are 0.3 mm thick and feature a new lime yellow emission color. The OLEDs in the "night fly" were processed on flexible substrates and finished graphically with screen-printing in a second step. The three-dimensional body of this fly is formed through a simple sticking together with an additional film. Extremely thin conductors are provided for electrical contacts that simultaneously serve as structural supports for the fly.

The video also shows similar OLEDs bended to a wheel.
