NKK Switches' OLED switch

The OLED SmartSwitch push-button measures 15.5mm x 11.6mm and provides full motion video, with a viewing angle of 180°. Although it isn’t meant for home use, the switch could be a handy way of either pimping up your home or another way of cramming yet another display into your house.
