I've predicted that e-readers will only get one year in the limelight before they're doomed, but that doesn't mean companies aren't still perfecting the technology behind electronic reading. Check out LG's new 19-inch e-ink display for example: Perfect for e-newspapers
Organic light emitting displays are the next big thing for mobile technology--they're better in so many ways. And LG's just demonstrated an OLED screen that's freakishly awesome: it can resist hammer blows. Show me your LCD doing that?
It may not be quite up to the spec of Geordi La Forge's visor on Star Trek TNG, but researchers in Germany have come up with an eyeglass-mounted display that's so freakily high-tech you may need only to move your eyes to control a PC.
We've sung the praises of flexible screen technology here a few times--it'll be a key part of the next revolution in gadget technology. And now another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place, as the ASU Flexible Display Center recently demonstrated a fully-flexible e-ink touchscreen.
The flexdisplay is in fact an e-ink device, bringing the benefits of low power-consumption and zero-power display. And, its touchscreen supports inputs by stylus pen or fingertip.
