    A research team at Osaka University has developed a new control interface for touchscreens that flexes the content that’s displayed when you move your finger over the screen.

  • Displaymate Analyzes iPad 2's Screen, Finds It Satisfactory

    A serious breakdown of the iPad 2’s screen has been done by Displaymate, and the conclusions are… not too surprising. It’s an excellent IPS-LCD screen, not a cut-rate one picked to save money, and its performance is, resolution aside, about the same as an iPhone 4’s. Read More

  • Fraunhofer OLED Display Takes Pictures Simultaneously

    A while back there was a crazy company trying to sell space cameras that could take pictures right onto a CPU that also acted as a display.
