I bet you’ve never thought about how giant clams will revolutionize future technology. It’s okay. You probably didn’t know about the incredible way these massive mollusks turn sunlight into power.
2016 might be the year of VR headsets and all, but some people still enjoy looking at regular screens. And the 30-inch, pro-level 4K OLED display Dell just announced looks like one hell of an upgrade.
Apple has opened a secretive laboratory in Taiwan to develop new LCD and OLED screen technologies for its devices, according to a report by Bloomberg.
When people think of tablets, they think of iPads. To some people, the word “tablet” basically means “iPad.” So it’s a big deal when Apple creates a new one. With the new iPad Pro, Apple’s finally created a tablet that’s supposed to be professional grade, but does that self-imposed accolade stand up under extensive…
What’s most impressive about this touchscreen that knows the exact angle of the finger touching it is that it’s the same display hardware found in every smartphone on the market right now. Its special abilities are all enabled through software, meaning your own phone is already capable of this.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro series has now had four chances to iron out all the wrinkles in its ambitious tablet/laptop hybrid. Although its still striving to be an all-around laptop killer, it seems Microsoft got one thing very right with the new Pro 4—it has one of the most accurate displays ever created.
Well hello there, overkill. This screen from Japan Display is a triumph in taking resolution to the extreme: it squeezes an 8K LCD module into a screen that measures just 17.3 inches.
The key element for a great tablet has always been a truly innovative and top performing display, and the best leading edge tablets have always flaunted their beautiful high-tech displays. The Microsoft Surface 3 is no exception.
People have been plugging Raspberry Pi boards into all kinds of displays for years, but now there’s an official—and portable—option: a 7-inch capacitive touch screen that will set you back just $60.
Tiny glowing dots have been the modus operandi for electronic displays since the TV was first invented. But at a Forever 21 store in New York, you’ll find a giant screen that swaps pixels for spools of colored thread that quickly align to display low-res images.
The world’s best (and most expensive) watches all have a sapphire crystal, because sapphire is incredibly hard, making them extremely scratch-resistant and almost scratch-proof under normal use. But sapphire is expensive, so most watches have a glass crystal instead, which isn’t as hard or scratch resistant as…
The prospect of a material that can change color yet is still flexible enough to wear as clothing is a perennial sci-fi dream—and now amazingly close to reality. This new electronic skin is just a few microns thick and yet manages to change color, acting as a credible digital display.
I’ve always liked the idea of having a projector, but never actually owned one. It always seemed like too much work: Sure, projecting movies like in theaters would be sweet, but then I’d have to set it up all the time. Isn’t there a better way?
Samsung has announced a new series of prototype OLED displays in Hong Kong that, with their mirrored and transparent surfaces, are like something from a sci-fi film.
See that up there? That’s the world’s first 10K television. You can’t buy it. Chinese display manufacturer BOE made the 82-inch screen just for the bragging rights (first!). That’s okay, though—there’s absolutely no reason to own a 10K TV right now.
LG consistently produces impressive screens, and this one is no exception. The 55-inch OLED panel is just 0.97 millimeters thick, and can be removed from its magnetic wall mounting like a poster.
The display is literally the crown jewel of the smartwatch, and Apple delivers with its OLED, sapphire crystal display on the Apple Watch.
Flip-dot displays certainly have an old-school charm about them, and they win extra points for energy efficiency. But I think I like them even better when they’re controlled by Lego bitmaps and built to spell out the word “awesome” like this one is.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo have dusted off some E Ink technology originally developed back in the 1970s to create a new kind of easily erasable whiteboard technology that can be written on using magnetic pens instead of dry-erase markers.
We love multiple monitor workstations, but “Ultrawide” displays, packing resolutions that rival two or three panels side-by-side, are looking better and better these days. After all, having more than one monitor doesn’t automatically make you more productive. Here’s how these new ultrawide monitors differ from a…
