It would make for the ultimate video watch, but Sony's targeted its new 0.7-inch ECX332A OLED microdisplay at micro four third cameras, providing a crisp, high res view of what's in frame through an electronic viewfinder.
Sixteen feet. That's taller than Yao Ming standing on Shaq's shoulders, more than an average-sized giraffe, and yet slightly less than the diagonal measurement of this gargantuan display. The days of Back to the Future II-style 3D advertising are nearly upon us!
E-ink technology is easier on the eyes for reading, even if the devices it's currently deployed in feel nothing like a book or magazine. But AU Optronics gives us another tantalising look at the future with a proof of concept ereader that's completely self-powered, while still as flexible as a piece of paper.
In the ongoing pursuit of making touchscreens feel a little less flat and smooth, researchers at Aachen University in Germany have created a prototype display with embedded magnets that provide a tactile response to users interacting with on-screen elements.
It's old news by now, but capacitive touchscreens are a pain to use in the winter because they can't detect your fingertaps through a pair of gloves. But SMK has improved the design of their 6.5-inch panels so that devices like car navigation systems can still be operated if you're driving with gloves on.
FlatpanelsHD put together an interesting analysis of why Samsung's Galaxy Nexus' 4.65-inch, 1280x720 Super AMOLED screen probably isn't comparable to Apple's 326 ppi Retina Display despite having a pixel density of 315 ppi. The reason: PenTile technology.
Apple raised the bar with the iPhone 4 by cramming an impressive 326 pixels per inch into its display. But Toshiba has officially dethroned them by upping that to 498 pixels per inch on their new LCD targeted at compact tablet devices.
