Rugged LG AMOLED displays withstand hammer blows

Thank god they’re finally making some strong screens. I have to replace my display every single time I hit it with a hammer — that’s unacceptable! LG’s display, shown here, was being hit repeatedly by a mallet during a demo at Computex. The simpler construction of an OLED display means it can be more robust to physical abuse.


This one in particular has its AMOLEDs on a glass substrate, with steel behind and a resin coating in front. I imagine that as long as the resin stays intact, the glass is unlikely to flex or break, so this display really can take a beating. Here’s hoping these super-thin, super-contrasty, super-durable displays make it onto our desktops soon.
