The World's Smallest Full HD Display

The iPhone 4's Retina Display is 3.5 inches, with a resolution of 960x640 and a pixel density of 326ppi. Pretty much everyone agrees it looks great. So how incredible must ORTUS's new 4.8-inch, 1,920×1080, 458ppi display look? » 10/25/10 9:23am 10/25/10 9:23am

Ocean Leader PMP Has Disappearing Screen

China's Ocean Leader Development isn't known for their cool MP3 players, but this PMP comes with a disappearing 1.8-inch TFT display, which means it only shows when necessary.

Venzero Slickr PMP Wants to Be iPhone Nano

If it looks a bit like an iPhone nano but doesn't work like one, it could be a Slickr. Sporting the same sleek looks that made the iPhone a hit (in a smaller frame), the Slickr loses a lot of cool points when you realize it doesn't have touch screen capabilities.

Forget about all those fancy component-style Media Center PCs you've seen out there. This here is the Bentley of them all, packing a 12-inch, sliding LCD that's claimed to hit the 1080p sweet spot.

Zigview: Twisted Display

Ok, ok, some pervert is obviously going to see the new Zigview digital angle viewfinder and think: "Wow, just what I need for all my 'up-the-skirt' shots." And while we're not condoning that usage for it, low-angle sidewalk shots are certainly an option with this new device. Attach this baby to the eyepiece of your… » 4/20/06 3:27pm 4/20/06 3:27pm
