Video: Paper-thin OLEDs illuminate consumer packaging at CES

28 December 2022

At CES 2023, taking place next week on January 5-8, 2023, in Las Vegas, Inuru will showcase its electric luminous film (ELF) that can be used in a variety of consumer labeling such as healthcare, wearables and promotion pieces where light-activated labels may be useful. The paper-thin organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) are designed for use in consumer packaging to highlight products or provide information.

The OLEDs are condensed into a thin waterproof and shockproof labels with free-form light powered by a stamp-size battery producing 3 V and 0.5 mA at 500 CD.

In healthcare, the ELF labels could be programmed with a shelf date and alert users to when the product is no longer viable for consumption.

In food and beverage, the labels illuminate when touched, bringing a new form of marketing or promotion, and can also be activated by motion detection when someone comes within six feet of the product.

Inuru said the ELF labels can be printed into almost anything, but the company is initially rolling the technology out as a marketing tool to enhance the brand presence.

The company will also be launching a line of rechargeable OLEDs at CES that can be merged with fabrics for new fashion in clothing or be used in safety such as walking or running at night.
