Alien Babel Tech reports that Toshiba is currently working on a product that we can only hope makes it past the research phase that it currently is in.


Dubbed "Video Wallpaper," Toshiba is trying to take OLED technology and put it on a thin and flexible paper that can then be used as wallpaper. Potentially this could turn any wall into a display that could be used to do anything from display television to simply change colors on the wall.

Toshiba said that the project is still several years away from becomming a commercial product, but if they can make it happen, you can add this to the list of science fiction technology that has become a reality.


"OLED is anticipated to become an important light-emitting device for the next generation," Toshiba said in a statement.


The problem that the scientists have had to overcome is increasing the efficiency of existing OLED devices, such as televisions that use the reduced-energy material. To achieve that, the wallpaper uses light that has been redirected by an ultra-fine grating that is fabricated by self-assembled nano particles, said Kaori Hiraki, a Toshiba spokesman.
