The PS3 and the Wii get LCDs

The PS3 and the Wii get LCDs
Why in the hell you would want to port around a PS3 I have no idea, same thing with the Wii really. But I guess we needed more accessories. Thanks to Clearvision’s new LCD attachment for the PS3 and China Vasion’s version for the Nintendo Wii, you can.

Both screens measure 7 inches and have integrated speakers along with a flip-top design that makes your console look like an oversized handheld. I can’t imagine playing any Wii game with the Wii version. You would have to stand about four feet away and good luck making out anything on that screen. If you wanted to use your Wii as a laptop I guess it would be cool.

Humax LCD TV is all about the future
And everyone knows that in the future everything will look like The Jetsons. We’ll have floating cities with escalators attached and robots will steal old people’s medicine, but that’s another story. This Humax LCD TV concept is designed by London’s Tej Chauhan. It’s pretty “future-retro”, combining the old retro look with a fresh take on the World of Tomorrow.

Just think 1950′s era renderings of the future. The device would feel right at home in any number of old Sci-fi shows and movies. We have no idea if this will actually become an honest to god consumer product, but until it does, you can always check it out at the Zona Tortona design show, between April 16th to the 21st. If you happen to live in Italy. The rest of us will just have to watch the Jetsons.

Toshiba develops circular LCD screen

Posted in LCD,Toshiba by Chetz on October 19th, 2007

Toshiba develops circle-shaped LCD monitorHaving square LCD monitors in the back of your vehicle’s headrests may soon be a thing of the past because Toshiba has figured out how to make a circular LCD screen. The electronics giant will unveil its no corner LCD screens next week in Yokohama at the FPD International 2007 convention. The screens use Toshiba’s proprietary low temperature poly silicon technology and allow for panel instrumentation to be circular too. Imagine having a built-in rear and side door views available on your car’s dashboard or an odometer whose background color you can change.

Toshiba can currently get these LCD screens down to 2.4-inches in diameter with a contrast ratio of 600:1 , 240 x 240 resolution and 250K of colors. We’re probably still a good couple of years away from seeing this technology trickle down to the everyday marketplace but we can start imagining now the fun it will be to watch widescreen movies on circular screens.
