Video shows Konica Minolta's new color tunable flexible OLED panels

Konica Minolta brought their color-tunable flexible OLEDs to L+B 2014, and now the company posted this video showing these new panels. The exhibition (which KM calls the Cradle Of Life) shows three design concepts by Takram design engineering.

In the video you can see the rotating Irodori uses a layered spiral design that resembles peacock features, the small Ibuki uses two light-weight panels that seem to float in the air and the Habataki 2.0 seems like a bird fledgling leaving the nest.

Konica Minolta also unveiled a structured (patterned) OLED panel that is quite beautiful. The idea is the KM's new panels are very light (feather-like light weight) and so they patterned a feather. KM says that their new OLED panels are the thinnest in the world at 70 microns.

Last month Konica Minolta announced that it is starting to construct an OLED lighting fab that will mass produce color tunable flexible OLEDs in a roll-to-roll process. Mass production will commence in the fall of 2014, and the fab will be able to produce a million panels per month.
