12/07/2009, Pixel Qi has already started to produce their first batch of displays for the masses, keeping them a wee bit ahead of schedule where production is concerned. The initial run will see action in “specialized tablet devices with multi-touch”, keeping us in the dark as to what these tablet devices would be in the future. Apart from that, there is hope that such displays will become thinner in due time, […]
11/09/2009, It looks like LCD technology is just getting better and better, and LG is certainly helping things along. In its latest press release, LG has detailed some of its special LCD HDTV monitors, touched to enhance just about any kind of environment. The new technologies incorporate wayfinding technologies, assisting guests in finding their way around the hotel. LG has also gone the extra mile to ensure that LCD computer monitors […]
11/09/2009, Display technology is certainly moving forward, and Seiko Epson Corporation has just announced that it has come up with the world’s first 4K-compatible high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT LCD panel for 3LCD projector. This new panel will utilize Epson’s C2Fine technology, and will also support a resolution of 4096 x 2160, which is 4 times the resolution of Full HD. Epson will be exhibiting the projector with this panel during the […]
10/29/2009, Art is extremely subjective, which is why we find this piece extremely fascinating as it relies on a canvas of 905 individual ping pong balls to function as a projection surface that makes way for interactive video imagery. 67 strings of ping pong balls are suspended in a cylindrical formation, where individual balls will act as a form of pixel for projecting digital images. A webcam is capable of tracking […]
10/19/2009, At CEATEC 09, we noticed that Sony’s new obsession is 3D, most notably with TVs and projectors, but look at this: it is a holographic display that would allow you to move around and see the side or back of the object. The prototype will be shown at Digital Contents Expo in Tokyo. Given the shape of the object, I bet that there’s something spinning in there and it might […]
10/12/2009, In today’s barrage of announcements from HP, we found a big 42″ LCD touch display that supports a 1080p resolution and is built to be on 24/7. The monitor can work in horizontal or vertical position. Now it would be interesting to see a few installations in the real world.
07/13/2009, e-Ink displays are in our future: whether it is to build eBooks, display art/advertising or to be used in hybrid LCD/e-ink displays, they are bound to be everywhere one day. This advertising display from Neoluxiim is so energy efficient that indoor solar power is enough to get it going. That’s pretty much our dream gadget to display art in the office. What’s the catch? Well, it dies after 18 months, which is a […]
06/10/2009, How do you know when you’re getting charged way too much money for something? When there’s a display on the brochure of course! Obviously, the price of the boats justify lofty means to promote them, so that’s OK, but still, it is amusing to see where these displays end up. We have not checked the Lamborghini brochures for a couple of month, but they might be next.
06/01/2009, Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) has underlined their intention to release a new AMOLED display that will feature an WVGA resolution of 800 x 400 pixels. This new display touts to bring four times the clarity as well as a brand new 300 PPI (Pixel Per Inch) level. In addition, Samsung also addresses power consumption issues by improving the performance while sipping less juice than ever before, so here’s to Samsung […]
05/18/2009, LG just shattered the record held by Sony’s 9.9mm-thin display by demonstrating a 5.9mm thin 42″ TV Panel. It comes in two sizes for now:: 42″ and 47″ and both are full HD, obviously (1920×1080). If you wonder, the refresh rate is 120Hz for a 8ms response time [thx Ken].
05/12/2009, We talked about Pixel Qi a couple of times in the past to mention their work on low-power displays or cheap computers. This time again Pixel Qi wants to shake things up by creating a display that is low-power (like e-ink) but that can reproduce colors and use current manufacturing technology, dominated by LCD. This doesn’t sound like a bad plan: e-Ink is clearly not good enough and customers want […]
