flexible OLED displays

Thu Jun 25, 2020 3:21 pm

Guys,

I saw an ad last night for several "flexible OLED displays (some with driver boards) that were advertised as RASPI or ARDUINO compatible.

Anyone used one? I can think of some interesting uses. These were stupid cheap as well.

and although they arent flexible these certainly show some promise:

I tried something like the square ones last year but my soldering skills were not up to the job.....

I've got some of those that I haven't had a chance to play with yet. Nowhere near that expensive though on ebay from China.

right?

I saw some flexible ones about 1.5" somehwat eround in appearenxce, could fit inside sunglasses for like $5

not including shipping or the month wait....

unless YOU know the trick. Everything I have ordered directly from CN has been at least 3 weeks, currently on my 5th week for my last order...

but ive never spent more that $50 at any one point so that might have something to do with it

Most times I'm prepared to wait. Especially for a display that costs less than $2 with free postage. If it's something I want faster I will go for a localish seller and pay the extra.
