This AMOLED display will feature a resolution of 1024×768. The previous AMOLED display had a resolution of 1024×600. But you won’t be seeing the new displays on tablets this year. When we hear more we will let you know.

It’s not everyday you see a 1920 x 1200-pixel IPS panel for your desk. Dell is offering just that with their new UltraSharp U2412M. It has over 2.3 million pixels with its 24-inch LED-backlit display and features in-plane switching (IPS) with a wide viewing angle, a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, DisplayPort and DVI connectivity.

There’s also a built-in USB hub, and height adjustability. Must be ultra expensive right? Not really. It retails for $399. Not bad at all for that price huh?

Hacked Kinect used to make 360 Snowglobe display

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2011

Flatscreen displays are so last decade. Taking a hint from the shape of our own planet perhaps, some students from Queens University have created a snowglobe display. They hacked a 3D HD projector, two Kinect sensors, and a hemispherical mirror inside of an acrylic sphere, to create “Project Snowglobe”.

The result is an almost holographic display with a 360-degree view of a digital subject. The object isn’t really projected in 3D, but follows the movements of a single person, rotating and shifting position with the viewer. You can still gesture to control various aspects of the object as well.

HP x2301 Ultra-thin LCD Monitor

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2011

We are used to our monitors being pretty thin these days, but not this thin. HP has introduced an ultra-thin LCD monitor that measures just 9.8mm thick. It weighs 7.7Lbs and the HP x2301 features a 1980×1080 (1080p) resolution with a 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a 3ms GtG response time, and BrightView technology.

The x2301 is also mercury- and arsenic-free with Energy Star 5.0 and EPEAT Silver certifications. That means it is also great for the environment. This LCD display can also display 72% of the color gamut. Other features include DVI, HDMI and VGA ports. The HP x2301 is available on June 10, 2011 for $279.99.

Next generation Wii controller to feature 6.2-inch display?

Posted in Nintendo by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2011

Kotaku’s sources claim that the new 8-button controller has a 6.2 inch screen, two analog sticks, and a camera. The new Wii console (right now known as the Wii 2, Wii HD, or just “Project Cafe”) is said to support the new controller as well as Wii Remote-style controllers for backward compatibility.

So why does the controller need a giant display? Well it would give you some options like putting the player’s inventory or map on the controller screen, allowing players to combine it with the controller’s camera to take photos that could be imported into a game or even turning the controller into a viewfinder. Sounds interesting, that’s for sure. Think of it as the lower screen on a DS, with your TV being the top screen.

Microsoft shows off 234″ touchscreen

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2011

There are large touchscreens, and then there are large touchscreens. Microsoft isn’t fooling around with this humongous beast. At the CeBIT 2011 show in Hanover Germany, Microsoft, with the help of a company called Stereolize, showed off ‘Microsoft Cinema’, basically a giant 234-inch touchscreen display.

It has more area than anyone, even an NBA player could touch, but we assume that the touch functionality goes all the way to the top. Pretty impressive if you are the Jolly green giant.

LG readying Optimus Big with 4.3-inch Nova display

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2011

Some leaked images and specs of an upcoming LG handset have been leaked. The handset will feature the same Nova display as the current Optimus Black, but at a larger 4.3 inches. That’s why the phone is being called the LG Optimus Big.

It’s expected to launch at Korea’s U+ provider in April. Some of the leaked specs include a 1GHz single-core CPU and a T-DMB TV tuner, which allows watching over-the-air TV broadcasts. That last feature insures that the handset won’t be coming to other markets. At least not without some major changes.

LG unveils super thin bezel monitor display

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2011

You’ve seen those video walls that companies use to promote their products. Usually they have thick bezels to match their huge display. Well, LG wants to improve this video wall technology with the 47WV30 47-inch LED super narrow bezel monitor display.

It’s currently being shown off at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2011. The LG 47WV3047-inch LED super narrow bezel monitor display offers a superior image without sacrificing convenience or cost efficiency. The 6.9 mm seam size makes it the slimmest on any 40- to 49-inch display, and it works great indoors or outdoors with brightness as high as 4,000 lux. No word on pricing yet.

HorodronHD-01 concept watch with E-Ink display

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2011

Sure you have many great watches to choose from these days, but what you want is something that will make you stand out from the crowd. Something like this HorodronHD-01 concept watch for instance.

Instead of an analog display, it features an E-Ink display that tells the time and also shows the date. But mostly it just looks cool and retro while also looking futuristic. We love the clean design.

Lenovo S800 phone with translucent display

Posted in Lenovo by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2010

Lenovo really likes the idea of a transparent screen on your smartphone. And so the company just presented the Lenovo S800 at a Chinese expo. The company says that the S800 is just a concept at the moment, but stresses that it is using a color display.

At any rate, image quality is sort of irrelevant on a translucent screen, so why should color matter? We have no idea if the S800 will become a commercial product, but we’d like to see where they can take this.

Guy pays $15K to play an MMO on a 820 foot long display

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2010

We all know that MMos are addictive, but you have to really be devoted to shell out $15K to play one on a giant screen. That’s what this guy did. He payed $15,000 to use a giant screen in Beijing to play a MMO. The screen was 820 feet long and he sat in a deck chair playing the game and looking up. Hopefully he was happy with the purchase.

The story behind it is that this guy was not happy that a competing guildmaster got to play in an IMAX theater. So this likely outdoes the other guy. At least we hope so. We’d hate to see them in some long drawn out screen war.

Palm Mansion to sport 5 inch display

Posted in Palm by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2010

Rumors are circulating about HP Palm’s next-generation webOS 2.0 offering which is codenamed the Palm Mansion. The device is said to have a 5-inch WVGA screen with a resolution of 480 X 800, which would make it similar to the Android-powered Dell Streak.

The 5-inch screen size would make it either a large smartphone or a small tablet. If it’s a smartphone, it would offer users a larger screen than traditional phones, which top at 4 inches, and still be pocketable. The device would also be using Palm’s webOS 2.0 operating system, which features smooth multitasking and several enhancements from the original webOS.
