A new prototype display represents the first time graphene has been used in a transistor-b...

Flexible displays are the new must-have element in the race for the next generation of high-tech electronic devices. A new prototype display created with graphene promises to provide a more efficient, printable alternative to current construction methods with the added benefit of perhaps one day creating a true, fully-folding display.  Read More

Spheree presents 3D models in a fish bowl-like display, which responds to changes in the v...

Although viewing a 3D digital model of an item allows you get a sense of the "real" object, it certainly doesn’t help if you’re looking at that three-dimensional model on a flat screen. That’s why Spheree was created. The result of a collaboration between a group of Brazilian and Canadian universities, it’s a spherical display that users can walk around, viewing a model from various angles as if the object were physically in front of them.  Read More

Jaguar's InControl infotainment system features an 8-inch touchscreen

Jaguar recently announced the upcoming debut of its new XE, providing teasing pictures of the compact sport sedan's engine and front-end. Now, the manufacturer has released details of the car's new infotainment system, which boasts an 8-inch touchscreen.  Read More

LG says that its flagship UltraWide monitor is equally suited to the needs of professional...

Gamers, graphic artists, CAD designers and even humble tech journalists who regularly spread their onscreen activities across multiple displays will doubtless have been as impressed as we were with LG's 34-inch UltraWide UM95 monitor on show at CES back in January. Now the Korean consumer electronics giant has gone one better with the announcement of an IFA 2014 debut for its 21:9 aspect curved QHD monitor, the UC97.  Read More

The Continental AR-HUD prototype brings augmented reality to the windshield

Displaying your speed on the windshield can be handy for keeping under the speed limit, but Continental is taking things to the next level with its Augmented Reality Head-up Display (AR-HUD) prototype. In addition to showing your current speed, the system can overlay information on the road specifically where it is most relevant to the driver, such as the distance to the car in front, when to make a turn, or even upcoming driving conditions.  Read More

Researchers at UC Berkeley claim to have created a vision-correcting matrix for display sc...

In an age where reading something from a screen on a phone or a computer is a normal part of our daily lives, the wearing of glasses or contact lenses often makes doing so a chore with eye-strain problems and the necessity to carry around spectacles or lenses wherever you go. In this vein, researchers at the University of California at Berkeley have created a prototype vision-correcting, printed pinhole matrix that they claim fits directly to a screen and negates the need for eyeglasses or remedial lenses and may one day offer improved visual acuity to those with eye problems much worse than simple farsightedness.  Read More

Today Apple upgraded the offerings in its MacBook Pro with Retina display line

Apple today pushed out a refresh of its MacBook Pro with Retina display lineup, giving both the 13- and 15-inch models a little more horsepower under the hood. Additionally, Apple has dropped the price of the top-of-the-line 15-in version of its high-resolution notebook, perhaps making that high-end upgrade a little easier to justify.  Read More

The 'Virtual Windscreen' is also able to display a racing line for trackday warriors

Looking to add a touch of Gran Turismo or Forza to your daily commute? Jaguar Land Rover is developing a Virtual Windscreen concept that aims to do just that with a slew of driver assistance technologies designed to keep your eyes on the road.  Read More

Still images drawn with the 'nano-pixel' technology that each measure around 70 micrometre...

The Retina displays featured on Apple's iPhone 4 and 5 models pack a pixel density of 326 ppi, with individual pixels measuring 78 micrometers. That might seem plenty good enough given the average human eye is unable to differentiate between the individual pixels, but scientists in the UK have now developed technology that could lead to extremely high-resolution displays that put such pixel densities to shame.  Read More

LG Display's new flexible OLED panel can be rolled up to a radius of 3 cm

After unveiling the world's first flexible OLED TV at CES earlier this year, LG has gone a step further with the unveiling of two new 18-inch OLED panels: the first is a transparent display, while the second can be rolled up. Although both fall short of the 77-inch flexible TV on show at CES, the company says the new panels prove that it has the technology to bring rollable TVs with screens in excess of 50 inches to market in the future.  Read More
