Displays are often a prominent feature in science-fiction and futuristic visions. We have now actually reached that future: OLEDs enable the creation of thin, flexible, transparent displays, and in new shapes too. They offer enormous opportunities to add new features to existing applications, or to create entirely new-style products.
Something that we need to survive can be fatal for electronic equipment and applications: heat. It is often the key factor in malfunctions and failures of electronic equipment and applications. But there are lots of innovative solutions for smart heat management.
