The best way to maximize the screen real estate on a smartphone without turning it into a massive phablet is to whittle away as much of the wasted space around the display as possible. And with its new 5.3-inch full HD LCD panel, LG has managed to reduce the size of the display's bezel to just 0.7mm—which is thinner…
One of the reasons the Kindle's e-ink display is more enjoyable to read with is because it's not constantly refreshing. You might not be able to discern it, but the high-speed flicker of your LCD can lead to eye strain and headaches. So a research lab in Japan has developed a display that can refresh as slowly as once…
Before YouTube, TV, and even the movies, people were genuinely entertained by a device called a Zoetrope that played simple looped animations while it spun. The animations were created on strips of paper that were placed inside the inner circumference of the device—a process that's been made considerably easier with…
If you thought the pixel density wars were going to stall out with Apple's 326ppi Retina display and its qHD cohorts, you are oh so mistaken. Sharp is working on their next-generation IGZO display technology, which includes a 6-inch display with a 2500x1600 resolution, good for a pixel density of 498ppi.
Even though this installation at the Nature Research Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, is composed of 3,600 see-through glass 'pixels' that can only change their opacity, it's still capable of playing back stunning animations mimicking phenomena in nature.
You can go on and on about how great the flatscreen TV in your home theater is, but I guarantee it won't hold a candle to the image, brightness, and color quality of Dolby's $40,000 reference monitor.
Researchers at UCLA have a new idea on how to use LCD panels, and it has nothing to do with video. Instead, they've devised a technology allowing screens to absorb and convert various light sources (like its own) into energy.
Take a sheet of Pic3D film, apply it to any LCD and it promises that it will properly display 3D video (displayed in the side-by-side format) without special glasses, thanks to lenticular lens technology.
After being hit with delays, Art Lebedev's scaled-down Optimus keyboard, the Mini Six, has finally hit the production line, the company confirmed via their LiveJournal (yes, really.)
Things such as brightness and responsiveness are adjustable variables on touchscreens. But what about stickiness? Is that even possible on a glass screen? Short answer: yes. And researchers at the University of British Columbia are showing off how this is possible.
If your iPad 2 is anything like mine, horrendous yellow spots start populating along the edges of the screen whenever something dark is displayed. As it turns out, a manufacturing defect in LG-produced LCD panels is to blame.
Dr. Raymond Soneira of DisplayMate breaks down misinformation about displays,and specs. Never again will you be fooled by LCD refresh rates, or stymied when trying to explain interlacing!
Toshiba's apparently investing $1.19 billion building a Japanese factory devoted entirely to making iPhone LCDs. Work on the factory will commence later next year, so if Toshiba gets the contract for iPhone 5 screens, they'll have to be made elsewhere.
Apple claims that their TV work is just a hobby, but that doesn't mean they don't innovate for the living room. A newly published patent outlines an LCD TV that has separate modes for video and still photos.
Microsoft has built their own version of the fabled Optimus Maximus—a QWERTY keyboard set on top of an LCD screen dubbed the Adaptive Keyboard. It looks stunning, but they're only letting students use it.
HP's new ZR30w S-IPS LCD display has a color resolution of 30-bits per pixel, resulting in some 1.07 billion displayable colors. If you're keeping count, that's about 64 times as many as you can see on an average LCD.
This can't be good for anyone but Apple—a patent app filed in 2004 has been granted for their capacitive multitouch display. UPDATE
The NYT published an interesting piece on display technologies, allowing doctors and professors to attack the age old question, are LCDs worse for your eyes than eReaders. The answer? It depends.
