E-passport gets AMOLED screen

At CeBIT 2010, German company Bundesdruckerei took the lid off what could be the future of airport custom security.

Besides biometric features, passports may soon get a tiny screen as a standard feature. Exhibiting what it calls the world's first e-passport equipped with an AMOLED display, German company Bundesdruckerei at CeBIT 2010 took the lid off what could be the future of airport custom security. This taps the same technology from Samsung that we Craved about earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas--the OLED display in a photo card.

The good news is the AMOLED panel is slim and bendable (and presumably hardy enough not to snap in your pocket). This comes in a 240x320-pixel resolution with a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. Even more amazing, there's no need for a battery since this charges by RF to power your rotating mugshot.
