Inuru says it is now focusing on two sections: medication and entertainment. Inuru's main focus for the medication industry is to use its OLED labels to assist patients in learning the expiration date on medication and to adhere to the prescribed guidelines. The company says that the repercussions of non-adherence and medication mismanagement contribute to an estimated $600 billion in preventable healthcare expenses and 325,000 annual fatalities.

MicroLEDs used to fix and replace an old OLED lighting installation in Taipei

Many years ago, The W Hotel in Taipei installed an OLED installation called You Fade to Light, designed by rAndom International creative studio and powered by Philips' OLED lighting panels. This beautiful piece consists of 2,000 modules, each lighting up as a response to people moving in front of it.

After several years these OLED panels started to fail (and fade, which is rather ironic given the installation's name), and now the hotel replaced the OLED panels with microLED-powered panels. It is said that the microLEDs achieved the same level of uniformity and light output of the OLEDs, maybe even surpassing them.

Korean researchers developed the first internal-use OLED-based phototherapy platform

Researchers from the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and the Asan Medical Center (AMC) have developed the world's first OLED-based catheter for phototherapy within internal organs.

OLED-based light therapy has been researched, and even commercialized, before, but only for external use. This is the first time that such a device has been developed for internal use.  The device developed by the joint research team is a catheter-shaped OLED platform that can be directly inserted into tubular organs like the duodenum and is water-resistant.

Audi's 2024 Q8 SUV to sport OLED taillights

Audi has unveiled the 2024 Q8 (and SQ8) SUV, which will sport OLED taillights, similar to the ones used in the 2022 Audi A8. These digital taillight OLEDs are supplied by OLEDWorks.

Audi recently announced that the 2024 Audi Q6 e-tron will come with its its second-gen OLED taillight technology, with 360 individual OLED panels built into 6 different lighting panels. The Q8 will likely use Audi's first-gen design, as it is said to be similar the the 2022 A8. The Q6 e-tron will also sport an AMOLED display in the dashboard
