The revolutionary technology uses light that has been redirected by an ultra-fine grating that is fabricated by self-assembled nano particles and hence can translate light into visuals all around you. Apart from acting as vibrant and ever-changing wallpapers, these OLED-enabled sheets are also expected to acts as self-powered sources of light. That means you will not have to worry about lighting as well.

Another key advantage, the company points out, is that OLED uses a fraction of the energy required for an LCD or plasma television.

Apart from the awesome possibilities this new direction of research offers, it also saves a great deal in terms of power consumption and carbon footprints. [via TheTelegraph]
