Smart devices

Flexible displays unlock innovative design paradigms for smart devices and bring surfaces to life.

Changing consumer lifestyles and progress in connectivity technologies are leading to a growing adoption of smart devices and prompting more brands to enter this market.

IHS Markit forecasts there will be 470 million smart home appliances installed by 2020. Web-enabled white goods and voice-enabled devices are increasingly popular with tech-loving consumers, particularly as they promise to enhance our daily lives.

With the huge market potential smart devices offer, brands face pressure to continually innovate and differentiate their products from the competition.

Integrating an active matrix display into home appliances can bring a range of functional benefits to the device and give it a cutting edge. But many new product designs have unique shapes and curves meaning that conventional glass-based displays cannot be used without compromising the design. Flexible organic LCD (OLCD) is a viable solution for adding active matrix displays to smart devices as it can be shaped, curved and wrapped around surfaces enabling different form factors. With OLCD being scalable to large areas, it can satisfy the needs for integrating a display in larger devices. 

FlexEnable is working with leading consumer electronics brands across many exciting application areas that redefine where and how displays are used in our everyday lives.
