OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) gets its name from the properties of its components. The term “organic” means that the components of this display technology are made of carbon-based organic materials that can emit light when an electric current is applied. “Light Emitting Diode” (LED) explains that each pixel is a diode and emits light when an electric current is applied. OLED screens do not require a backlight source, as each pixel produces its own light. This feature makes it possible to create thinner and more energy-efficient screens.
Widely used in everyday life from TVs to smartphones, OLED technology offers brighter, more powerful and more energy efficient displays. Many high-end smartphones are equipped with OLED displays that offer vibrant colors and deep blacks, enhancing the overall visual experience. OLED screens enable you to view the photos and videos you capture with greater clarity and precision.. Smartwatches and wearable devices prefer OLED screens for their energy efficiency and the ability to keep the screen on continuously.
By combining Pico Bricks with an OLED display, we can embark on various creative projects. Using Raspberry Pi alongside an OLED screen, you can create a weather station that displays real-time weather information. You can also develop a variety of simple games that can be played on the OLED screen. For instance, you could create games like Snake, Quiz, and Tetris.
