Japanese firm Ito Electronics has showcased a waterproof OLED at a technology fair in the country. Little’s known about the display’s features, but the picture shows the screen in a “packaging technology” that we assume is what gives the OLED its waterproof ability.

Given that two wristwatches are displayed beside the water-filled vase, it’s possible that Ito’s planning to transplant its waterproof OLEDs into watches. Several manufacturers have already talked-up OLED watches, including LG – which recently launched its GD910 video-capable wristphone. ®
