    Kindle Fire Display Doesn’t Stand Up To Nook, iPad 2 In Tests

    You probably know that not all LCDs are created equal: at a given size, you can have different resolutions, lighting methods, and display-driving technologies.

    Since 2006, Tokyo-based Burton has been working on Aerial 3D, a technology that makes it possible to produce pictures in 3D in mid-air or underwater – without using a screen (that’s what I call “True 3D Technology” indeed). Burton says their laser-based system is the only one of its kind. The current system projects objects at 50,000 dots per second and with a frame rate… Read More

    Video: This 3D Display Uses Multiple Lenses To Boost Sense Of Depth Perception

    Naked-eye 3D displays, even large-sized models, are nothing special anymore, but they usually have a common problem: the 3D effect when viewing pictures isn’t as strong as with displays that require users to wear glasses.

And this year’s expo looks like… Read More

Sub-pixel layouts are something few people consider, but (as… Read More
