Computer users with small desks often wish they had more desk space. However, workspace can be hard to come by thanks to big computer displays and keyboards. Samsung now has a slick display called the Space Monitor.
It’s not easy to display your cool Star Wars stuff. Your figures don’t really look good in those protective plastic bubbles and display cards just sitting there on a shelf. Even if you buy two of everything so you can display one, it’s still hard to make this stuff look good while on display.
Smartphones are reaching their limits as far as acceptable size, but TVs keep pushing the boundaries. Display resolutions get higher, the sizes of our sets get bigger and they get sharper and thinner. There’s no end in site.
When it comes to displays, companies push out new models that focus on three main areas: bigger, brighter, and higher-resolution. This latest offering from LG is no exception. The Korean consumer electronics maker has officially announced a display that they claim is the world’s first 88-inch 8K display.
Back when I was a kid, a 27-inch TV was considered HUGE. Boy, have things changed. These days, anything less than 55 inches is considered a “small” TV screen. I’ve got a 70-inch display in my living room now, and that’s big enough for me, but for some people bigger is always better.
A lot of people like to use bell jars to display objects, but the Bell Jar Light from Suck UK comes with built-in lighting in its base to illuminate whatever you’re showing off inside. It is perfect for all of your geeky action figures and toys.
About a year and a half ago, we got our first glimpse at the Dasung E Ink computer monitor. It looked pretty cool and has some great features, but it was pricy. Also, it never came to market in a way that you could easily buy it.
Last week we checked out Ben Heck’s keyboard and display in a box that he made to test dev kits. I mentioned that it should be a gadget that already exists. It turns out it does, and it’s called the NexDock.
Need a cheap display for your Raspberry Pi? Or perhaps you’re building a Times Square for ants? Then check out this guide by Adafruit’s Tony Dicola.
The project is based around Adafruit’s RGB Matrix HAT for the Raspberry Pi, which makes it easy to power and output to daisy chained LED matrices.
It’s been almost two years since I first saw Vizio’s incredibly impressive Reference Series displays. To be honest, when I saw the early prototypes, I thought they had the best picture I’ve ever seen on a display, ever.
One of the Dreamcast’s most unique features was its Visual Memory Unit (VMU). The VMU plugged into the Dreamcast controller to serve as a memory card, but it also had a tiny monochrome display that was used as a second screen in some games.
Video chat app maker ooVoo wanted to stand out at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), so they built a gigantic array flip-dot panels and got them working as one display. Hack A Day interviewed ooVoo and found out that each panel is a 28×14 grid of discs.
Terry McGinnis hated the Bat-Signal, but he might consider Aerial Burton’s True 3D Display. The Japanese company’s proof-of-concept device creates three dimensional images by reflecting a laser beam into the air. When air molecules are hit by the beam, they become ionized for a brief moment and release photons into the air, which manifest as bright dots of light.
