How to Print a Super-Thin Touchscreen Display on Just About Anything

We've kept a close eye on the 27th ACM Symposium on INTER Software and Technology in Honolulu this week, given that it's already produced dozens of fascinating prototypes. But this award-winning paper is perhaps the coolest we've seen: It lays out a new technique for printing cheap, simple touchscreen displays with… »10/07/14 5:52pm10/07/14 5:52pm


Scientist Predicts Flexible Computers As Shape Of Things to Come

We've been talking about next-gen display technology like e-paper for ages, but professor Roel Vertegaal thinks we're not thinking about future computing flexibly enough. He's convinced that "non-planar" computing devices with screens in almost any shape will one day be ubiquitous, and is busy building prototypes in… »6/03/08 12:00pm6/03/08 12:00pm
