New displays

This electronic Digicharm Tag uses a new display technology called PLEDs.

A layer of plastic only a few nanometres thick is between two thin layers of metal.

When electricity passes through the plastic it glows.

PLED displays have a higher contrast than LCD screens and can be printed onto anything.
