The telly doesn't come cheap, mind. It may only be 3mm thick, but it'll set you back $2500 (£1300) – the cost of three decent-sized plasma or LCD TVs. And the XEL-1 is just 11in in the diagonal.

Still, this is the cutting edge. OLED delivers brighter, more vivid colours than other flat-panel technologies and consumes a lot less power. Find out all the detail in Register Hardware's future-display technology feature.
