Glassified's clear graphics display allows augmented reality interaction with your drawing...

A team of researchers from the Fluid Interfaces Group at MIT Media Lab has created a truly useful bit of DIY technology in the form of Glassified – a modified ruler that does far more than just allow you to draw straight lines.  Read More

The Sony headset provides surgeons with a 3D image of the inside of the patient

Having introduced its HMZ-T1 personal 3D viewer aimed at the home entertainment market in 2011, and updating it in 2012 with the HMZ-T2, Sony has ventured into the operating theater for its latest head-mounted display. Unveiled last week in Tokyo, the "head-mount image processing unit" gives surgeons virtual X-ray vision by means of an endoscope feeding images to a pair of head-mounted monitors. This setup allows surgeons to view high definition 3D images from inside the patient while carrying out laparoscopic surgery.  Read More

The Holovision projector is designed to produce a life-size image of a person

Close on the heels of the 21st century complaint of “Where’s my jetpack?” is “Where’s my holographic projector?”. Nothing spells “future” like having a conversation with someone whose life-size image is beamed into the room. Provision of Chatsworth, California wants to bring that one step closer to reality, with its Holovision life-size holographic projector. The company is currently running a Kickstarter campaign aimed at raising US$950,000 to fund the development of new technology for the projector, with hopes of unveiling it next year.  Read More

Reevu's proposed motorcycle helmet Heads-Up Display (HUD)

Motorcycle helmet innovator Reevu has come up with what it claims is the world's first commercially available intelligent helmet with a built-in heads-up display, or HUD. While that's a bit misleading – it won't actually be available for another 18-24 months – a HUD for bikers is clearly an exciting prospect, and Reevu with its experience in building in rear-vision capabilities is probably in an excellent position to get it to market.  Read More

LG Display has announced the development of a super-thin, 5.2-inch Full HD display panel

Just over a year after showing off a new Full HD smartphone display, LG's Display wing has taken the wraps off a new variant that's being hailed as the world's thinnest. The working 5.2-inch panel boasts a 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution, and represents the first outing for a proprietary touch technology called Advanced One-Glass-Solution, where two flexible printed circuits are positioned between the glass and the touch layer.  Read More

A butterfly imaged on MIT's new holographic display

Researchers at MIT’s Media Lab have developed a new form of holographic projector that may enable the introduction of practical color 3D holographic video displays as well as higher-resolution 2D displays with lower power consumption. The new projector is built using principles of guided wave optics to construct the spatial light modulator (SLM) that is the heart of digital holography. The MIT holographic projector, which contains an SLM costing US$10 to fabricate, provides 3D images at 30 frames per second (fps) with a resolution similar to that of a standard-definition TV.  Read More

The 3200 x 1800 resolution 13.3-inch notebook display from Samsung

Samsung Display has chosen Vancouver's Display Week Exhibition hosted by the Society for Information Display to unveil two new Retina-beating display panels. The WQXGA 10.1-inch LCD screen will be used for tablets, while the QHD+ 13.3-inch is destined for notebooks. Details are scant, but we have managed to persuade Samsung to part with a few key specs.  Read More

The Casetop from Livi Design

Packing powerful processors supported by a healthy amount of system memory and storage, modern smartphones are just like mini computers that can be carried around in your pocket. As a mobile office, however, such devices do have some practical limitations. Even with the relatively large display offered by Samsung's new Galaxy S4, for example, having to use a finger to input text can be a real productivity killer. What's needed is a comfortable physical keyboard and more spacious display real estate. That's precisely what's on offer with the Casetop from Livi Design, a netbook-like LCD panel, keyboard and battery pack combination that uses a smartphone for its computing power.  Read More

The patent reveals Apple's vision of the iPhone's future

A new release by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) might just provide a glimpse of the future of Apple's popular iPhone handset. The filing details an “electronic device with wrap around display” and includes a number interesting design features, paramount among which is its curved display and transparent housing.  Read More
