Apple Exploring Making its Own Displays for Watches and iPhones: Report

One of the major keys to Apple’s success over the years has been the tight control it exerts over the components in its devices. Many things such as the iPhone’s A-series processors and metal and glass chassis are designed in house, in order to meet the company’s demanding specifications, before being sent to big manufactures like Foxconn or TSMC. However, when it comes to displays, Apple has relied on what are essentially off-the-shelf components from third-parties like LG (which makes the screen currently used in the Apple Watch) and Samsung (who makes the screen used in the iPhone X). Based on a report from Bloomberg, that could change. Read More >>

Picadilly Circus’s New Screen Will Display Ads Based on the People and Cars Around It

George Orwell was very worried about governments abusing their power with mass surveillance, and right as he was to be concerned he never really considered the fact that private companies would be at it to.

The technology powering the display on your phone, or even your TV, is a lot different than it was even ten years ago. More colours, more pixels, and a whole lot more acronyms and complex terms that mean something — even if you have no idea what that something is. Display technology in 2017 is a complicated business, but if you understand some basic concepts and a few of the acronyms everything starts to be about as clear as that sweet iPhone display you might be reading this on.

Some Beautiful Nerd Built a Motorised, Rotating Monitor Stand to Save His Neck

Ultra-wide monitors are great for watching movies, viewing photos, or playing video games, but terrible for reading web pages and long documents.

A Wild New 3D Display Uses Lasers and Bubbles to Create Images You Can Walk Around

Researchers really want to make good three-dimensional displays. It is so much harder than you might think—at this point, we have lots, but most attempts are literally smoke (light projected and scattered on some medium) and mirrors (optical illusions). There aren’t many examples of voxels, 3D pixels, lined up to create an image that you can walk around and see clearly from all sides. Read More >>
