Super thin display panels are rapidly approaching the point at which they will cease to exist if you look at them sideways, as this minuscule 0.02mm (that’s 0.0079 inch) 320 x 220 OLED panel developed by Sony demonstrates. If you don’t have a metric ruler handy, 0.2mm qualifies as “micro point” when it comes to ballpoint pen tips. If you can handle a 50% increase in thickness, Sony also has produced a 0.3mm, 11″ (960 x 540) prototype, which is ten times thinner than their very, very thin production model OLED TV.
No production plans yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of this stuff in a product or two next year at CES, if not before.
