Oh, Organic Light-Emitting Diode Tree...

You’d be the all-star on the block if you put this baby in your front lawn!

GE’s created an Organic Light-Emitting Diode, or OLED, Christmas tree. Basically it’s a 15-foot strip of 6-inch wide OLED panels, coiled up to make a tree shape.

It’s nifty, but the real Christmas miracle is how it works.

Now, I’m no gadget expert, but apparently OLED technology is very green. According to Wikipedia, when a film of electroluminescent organic compounds are combined with a polymer substance they emit light, which can used to make screens for things like cell phones and PDAs.

Ouch, my heard hurts!

But yeah, it’s way cooler than a cardboard tree or the brussel tree.
