Smartphones have evolved in a way where they now come with larger and brighter displays, sporting ever higher resolutions – and all of that performance means one thing as well, which is a faster depletion of the handset’s battery life. Well, what if there is a way which helps offset the amount of juice consumed by the smartphone’s display? Arman Ahnood, a researcher at the London Centre for Nanotechnology, explained […]
It’s been awhile since anything innovative has been done with a car sunroof, but it looks like Philips and BASF want to change that. The two companies have developed a prototype sunroof that uses solar-powered OLED panels. During the day, the panels become clear and let in sunlight while charging up the solar cells at the same time. At night, the panels can be turned on to act as lights […]
I just spent some time looking at the LG OLED Display, and I wanted to report about what I saw and share my initial impressions. If you saw the display for yourself, you wouldn’t be surprised if I say that the contrast is the best that I have seen for a screen of this size, and I have seen a fair share of displays. Obviously, LG did every effort to […]
LG Display has just announced that it has successfully developed a 55″ OLED panel for HD televisions. At the moment, producing large OLED displays is an ongoing challenge, just like it was the case for LCD displays years ago. The industry bumps into, and eventually overcomes, major manufacturing challenges that hurts the yields (or reject rates) of end products. The higher the reject, and the more expensive it is to […]

Yup, it’s official folks! The third generation Nexus device by Samsung is now official, and it looks it will be going by the Galaxy Nexus moniker instead of the Nexus Prime name that we have been hearing so much about. As far as hardware specs are concerned, it’s pretty much the same specs that was leaked earlier on today.

[CEATEC 2011] Curved displays are definitely something worth looking at – it is somewhat mesmerizing in its very own way just like how a child walks through the glass tunnel of an underwater world for the first time in his/her life. Well, Mitsubishi’s effort with the curved display you see here definitely makes most hearts skip a beat the first time they see it in action. Known as the Diamond […]

Well, it looks like we’re one step closer to having such gadgets at our disposal, thanks to the engineers over at the University of California, Los Angeles.The engineers there […]
A while back there were rumors that Apple was planning its very own 55” OLED television while partnered with LG. Well it looks like if you were hoping to get your hands on the rumored television, LG Display’s CEO Kwon Young-Soo has come out and denied those rumors. The reason is because “Apple is still pessimistic about using OLED displays” according to sources who were involved in the matter.
Stereoscopic 3D technology has certainly proved to be one of the more popular showcase appliances for many major consumer electronics players at CES earlier this year, but the adoption of 3D HDTVs are perhaps not as explosive as industry analysts expected. Perhaps the general consumer feel that it is not quite a need yet, and even if you were to rely on a passive shutter system, you will still need […]

If that got your attention, then the concept i Roll phone by India-based designer, Sudhanwa Chavan, might be something you could be very interested in, and […]
