  • Tech geeks -- OLED?

    Went into Best Buy for a cord and on the way out, we were awe-struck by how awesome the OLED TV they had on display looked. After talking with the employee there, and listening to how the technology works, I'm still having a hard time wrapping my brain around it. From what he said, each pixel is a living bacteria that illuminates to different colours. A LIVING CREATURE. Being electrified for our amusement. In theory it seems almost wrong, but DAMN did that TV look leaps and bounds better than anything else they had at the store.

    Does anyone actually own one of these "Organic" LED techs? Supposedly some phones use this technology now too.

    It's a variant of the Andromeda Strain, nothing to worry about.

      What is an OLED?

      OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) is a flat light emitting technology, made by placing a series of organic thin films between two conductors. When electrical current is applied, a bright light is emitted. OLEDs can be used to make displays and lighting. Because OLEDs emit light they do not require a backlight and so are thinner and more efficient than LCD displays(which do require a white backlight).

        Bacterial slavery, what's the worst that can happen!

        I mean, who thought of this in the first place? It seems so weird to even consider. I wonder how long these little creatures live, and what happens when they start to die out.

            I'm going by what the dude said at the store. He was extremely passionate about the technology so I am assuming what he said was correct. It was a very indepth explanation of how it worked. I'm paraphrasing here.

                ftr I'm not in the market for one, there's no way I'm spending $2k+ on a TV. I just had a hard time wrapping my brain around the technology.

                    But never ever feed them after midnight!

                      Organic does not mean living. There is nothing alive in an OLED TV. And you take his word over our experts here on UJ? It's Best Buy for crying out loud, home of the Geek Squad; the most incompetent techs on the planet.

                        They're actually tiny little octopi wearing disco lights on their heads.

                            Nuh uh, there are bacteria in there that eat electricity and shit out light, and live forever. The scientists working in best buy wouldn't get that kind of stuff wrong, and if they did, JCW wouldn't be deceived. Conclusion, the TV definitely works by slave bacteria.
