If you have a PS3 and you would like to be able to play 3D games and watch 3D Blu-ray flicks, but you don’t want to upgrade to a 3D TV costing thousands of dollars, Sony has a good alternative, the PlayStation 3D Monitor Kit, announced at E3 earlier this year.
I find it amazing that designers and visionaries in the industry are so abreast not only with fashion trends, but also with the shifting attitudes of consumers.
As a response to today’s quick-to-dispose society, Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves have come up with a stylish and innovative collection of glasses and spectacles that are made from… human hair.
This must be one of the largest rocker switch arrays that I’ve ever seen (or is it the only one?). Needless to say that I hope Valentin Ruhry got a volume discount on all those rocker switches used to create his display since he used about 4,750 of them to make it.
This giant light-up disco ball is nearly 20 feet in diameter and is comprised of an astounding 10,000 OLED displays. Mitsubishi calls it their OLED Geo-Cosmos globe and it will be introduced at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo.
E ink has some cool tech, and its screens have turned up in everything from eReaders to watches over the years. The cool thing about its screens is that they have tons of contrast and are easy to read in direct sunlight.
Scrolling is one of the most frequent actions made in interacting with touchscreen devices. For me it’s such a basic action that I actually didn’t think too much of it, until I saw this new control interface developed by a research team at Osaka University.
I have never liked working on a notebook computer if I can help it. I know a lot of people that work from notebooks exclusively in the office and out. I want room to spread out and a nice thin keyboard and a high sensitivity mouse when I work.
If Monty Python and the Holy Grail ever gets a remake, this is the tech that will be used for the evil bunny. This might sound like some sort of silly joke, but a trio of researchers from Japan has developed a way to project a 3D bunny onto a fog display using three projectors.
It’s not like I haven’t seen matrix displays before, but this is definitely a unique spin on the concept. Developed by Rick Borovoy, Ph. D. and Brian Knep of the MIT Center for Future Civic Media, Junkyard Jumbotron lets you combine a number of internet-connected screens together to create one big matrixed image.
Glasses-free 3D is the “next-big thing” in display technology. Of course, nobody has really created the perfect glasses-free display yet, but the quality had improved by leaps and bounds in even the last year. Now, SEGA has announced they’ll be releasing an arcade game with a 52-inch 3D glasses-free display.
After that 200-inch monster 3D screen from yesterday, it looks like the touchscreen guys wanted us to know they could keep up. This enormous multi-touch screen measures about 33 feet wide. Now that is pretty big.
If you are the type of notebook or netbook user that wants a larger screen when you are at home, but you don’t have a video output or spare power outlet available, you might be interested in one of the USB-powered screens that are on the market.
How’d you like it if you could turn your iPhone into a glasses-free 3D display?
By using an old-school technique with a half-silvered mirror placed at a 45-degree angle, along with a special app, the i3DG Palm Top Theater turns your iPhone or iPodTouch into a 3D display.
Intel’s Wireless Display technology was created to allow laptop users to transmit video and sound from their computers to television screens wirelessly. I recently had a chance to put the tech through its paces, and would like to share my experiences with you.
I am more interested in 3D gaming in my home than I am in 3D movies. I would bet that most folks feel the same way if they are into video games. I will wear glasses to play games, but watching TV with glasses isn’t appealing to me.
