  • Stop making 149" OLED displays and start making 25" ones, you fools!

    Stop making 149" OLED displays and start making 25" ones, you fools!

    Yes, Mitsubishi. We’re all very impressed with your 149″ OLED TV (even though it runs at a ridiculous 1024×640), but we also know that thing is one-of-a-kind and proves nothing. Why don’t you skip the showboating and put out a couple sweet displays people might actually want to use in their homes? I know they’d be expensive, but someone would buy them because they cost… Read More

  • OLED board game pieces promise to take Carcassonne into the far future

    My buddy Lou tells this story: he was with his girlfriend at the time and he got a call from a couple they knew. They couple invited them over for "boardgames and wine" and Lou said "Sure." Then his girlfriend told him that they were not going over for boardgames and wine because, in that couple's special code, "boardgames and wine" as some sort of weird partner swapping game involving lots of… Read More

    Asus getting into the e-reader game in a big way

    Asus leaked some information recently about their upcoming e-reader, the DR-570. Not content to be a "me too" with the standard black and white e-ink product, it looks like they are going to be coming out with an OLED offering that might just kick the rest of the e-readers to the curb.

  • Color-temperature adustable OLED lighting? Yes, please

    Color-temperature adustable OLED lighting? Yes, please

    We've noted before that LED lights are, while energy efficient, a bit cool in color, leading to the "my house looks like an operating room" effect. There have been attempts to warm them up (with "quantum dots") but this panel looks a hell of a lot more promising, even if it's not particularly bright. J.H. Jou, a Taiwanese researcher, has found that with a particular species of OLED, he can vary… Read More

  • LPD: Prysm's New Acronym Promises Huge Screens, 75% Less Power Consumption

    LPD: Prysm's New Acronym Promises Huge Screens, 75% Less Power Consumption

    If you've looked at buying a television the past several years, chances are you're well aware of the terms: Plasma, DLP, LCD, and more recently, OLED. Well, there's a new acronym in town: LPD. Developed by the Silicon Valley-based Prysm, LPD is being formally unveiled today as the latest type of screen technology. LPD stands for Laser Phosphor Display, which likely means nothing to you, but the… Read More

  • OLED ID cards creepy, probably helpful

    I question the actually utility of this, except for in corporate ID badging. It is cool though, combining OLED, RFID, and 3D into an ID. Plus, how is that for an alphabet soup of acronyms? Thanks to NetbookNews for the tip. Read More

    Hands-on LG's amazingly tiny OLED TVs

    These will be shipping the second half of 2010 to various potentates and oil barons around the world. It’s one of the smallest OLED devices I’ve seen since Sony’s diminutive offering that never really made it into the wild. Read More

  • Orbeos OLED lights are warm and round

    Orbeos OLED lights are warm and round

    So far, I've avoided the CFL and LED light bulb revolution. The savings, it seems, come around in the second year, which means that whoever has my apartment next will have a reduced power bill. I could always take my light bulbs with me, but that seems a bit miserly. Besides, my power bill is like $5 a month and 90% of that is my fridge and my desktop. But these Orbeos OLED lights are as bright… Read More

  • Casio plans to enter the OLED game

    OLED can still pretty much be considered a thing of the future, but we're getting closer to use the technology in our homes every month. Today, Casio Computer announced [JP] it has teamed up with Tokyo-based technology company Toppan Printing to develop and produce OLED panels. The new joint venture will start operations from April 2010, with both companies involved saying they'll focus on… Read More

  • Mitsubishi's modular Diamond Vision OLED system demoed

    OLED has had issues gaining traction mainly because of the cost of manufacturing large screens. People like large screens. That’s the fact, jack. Anyway, Mitsubishi has developed a system that seems like it would help. It uses small, modular panels that can be combined to make a screen of nearly any size or shape. The system is intended for outdoor advertising, but if it matures enough, I… Read More
