LED Luminaries

LED news and insight from our technology editor Steve Bush, who has been messing with LED lighting for more years than he would care to remember.


Here’s one OLED product I hope we don’t see in the UK.

Shown off by Samsung at CES, it’s the possible future of RF(ID) cards. The OLED screen displays a 360 degree rotating video of the owner’s head…

It works by holding the ID card against a special RF-ID Reader, which animates the video portrait.

Thanks to Engadget for this one, which writes:

“Samsung Mobile Display’s Specimen Display Card Prototype is a pretty bog-standard ID – until you bring it within range of an ISO 14443 RFID card reader, at which point the OLED display springs to life, summoning a 360 degree closeup of the card holder’s head.Looks like it just got a little harder to change your identity, no?”
