LG Unveils Color E-Paper

Posted in Digital Imaging,LG,News by Chetz on May 14th, 2007

LG develops electronic ink e-paperThe day when you will be able to flip pages on your newspaper while watching full motion video articles and ads may be sooner than you think. Yesterday LG Philips announced that it has successfully manufactured the first A4-size color electronic-paper capable of displaying up to 4,096 colors. The e-paper, which is a flexible thin sheet, measured 35.9 cm (14.1 inches) diagonally and is just 0.3 mm thick. LG also said that it had made its e-paper to be power smart and uses energy only when the image needs to change on the “page”.

E-paper works by using the electric charge to move electronic ink across a metal foil. Instead of using backlighting the e-paper reflects the light allowing for a greater field of angles (up to 180 degrees) to read the page from. LG Philips’ new e-paper also utilizes a color filter that …

Free space TV coming with the HelioDisplay

Posted in Digital Imaging,Television by Reuben Drake on March 6th, 2007

Free Space television with the HeliodisplayThe very same company that produced the M2 Heliodisplay mid-air projector has just come out with their latest project – the new M3/M3i Heliodisplay.

This nifty thing is basically a monitor that displays images in free space, just like those holograms of Princess Lea asking Obi Wan for help. With a viewing space of 30inches and a resolution of 1024×768, the display is quite blurry and not very stable. However, with advances this particular technology should become a big thing in the near future. Currently, this will set you back a very hefty price of $18,100 for the basic version and $19,400 for the interactive version.
