Hey, this was a really cool interview! Can you give us some more information about Mark Shanks and what Toupled does?
Rob Wray from mp3Car interviews Mark Shanks from Toupled about OLED and respond to question from m3pCar forum members.
They discuss the history of OLED, the challenges they face, how they work, and why they are superior to LCD.
There are a lot of possibilities with OLED including flexible surfaces and transparent applications.
Very good interview. I don't think this technology will be ready anytime soon. I see it becoming main stream in maybe 2 to 3 years, where it is actually usable and reliable. I'm worried about the displays burning out, and if really embedded into an application, like a wind shield or what not, it will be pain stacking to have to replace something.

ModisTech to commercialize cheap, flexible OLED lighting this year
By Donald Melanson posted Feb 20th 2010 6:51AM
It's far from the only one working on flexible OLED lighting, but it looks like ModisTech could be among the first to actually bring something to market, as its now announced that it will begin commercialization of its 150 x 150mm flexible OLED panels this year (seemingly ahead of its original 2011 schedule). Those will apparently be used for various indirect lighting applications including desk lamps and car lighting, and promise to provide a more natural light than LEDs while maintaining some of the same power savings. Still no word on any actual products using the OLED panels, unfortunately, but they will supposedly be inexpensive for companies to adopt (and very cheap to manufacture).
