  • Sony's Flexible, Full-Color OLED Display

    Sony today unveiled a new screen that will forever change the future of electronic devices. This new 2.5-inch OLED screen is made of a glass substrate that allows you to casually bend the screen. Since the display is wafer-thin, you one day might see these inside magazines as advertisements or perhaps on the back of a cellphone for viewing movies. It uses organic TFT technology to keep clarity… Read More

  • Sony-Ericsson Prototyped Leaked

    Sony-Ericsson Prototyped Leaked

    A new Sony-Ericsson model has appeared on a Polish auction site and the phone is looking quite handsome. The seller lists the phone as a “Sony X123i”, which sounds to us like a prototype model or a completely made up name. Apparently, the phone is set to be the successor to the W850 and we like what we see. Specs on this orangey-red slider include a 16.7 million color LCD, 3G… Read More

  • Polymer Vision Readius

    Polymer Vision Readius

    I finally found the Polymer Vision Readius nestled quite close to the press room. This is the rollable display everyone has been talking about and it’s actually quite cool.

This is more like the Sony Reader than anything else and it doesn’t appear to be… Read More

That’s why we find it exceedingly fitting that the script for the new Michael Bay Transformers film, opening July 4th, calls for a handful of gadgets that… Read More

  • Personal Soundtrack Is Exactly What It Sounds Like

    I live in what could be classified as “a big city,” and every day my journey to work is different. Sometimes I’m early and I get off the El early and walk casually down Michigan Ave. Sometimes, I’m extremely late so I have to walk briskly (because running is so lame) to make it on time. However I get to work, I’ve got my MP3 player firmly planted in my ears. This can… Read More

  • Cambridge Geniuses Invent Practical Digital Scroll

    In a few years, your PDA might be the size of a typical soda straw. That’s apparently the idea behind this nifty working roll-up LCD that some smartypants at Cambridge have come up with. At less than 1mm thick, and flexible, it rolls up to about the same diameter as the cardboard from a roll of paper towels. It’s still an early prototype, and is currently only capable of displaying… Read More
