LAS VEGAS--Here's a cool idea that was demonstrated at the OLED Association booth at Digital Experience event, a pre-CES event. This Samsung innovation weds the ultraslim property of OLED panels with contactless RFID technology for security applications. The result: a photo card with a screen that's also wafer-thin. In this case, the panel is displaying a rotating image of the person, which is automatically generated once the card is scanned over a sensor, presumably for identification purposes.

According to the OA's spokesperson, this solution is a finished product and all ready to go to market. One of the reasons cited for the low cost is the commoditization of small OLED panels, which are widely used today in mobile devices such as cell phones.

Watch the Engadget video below to see the photo card in action.
