Scientists Found a Way to Make Inexpensive, Solid-Looking 3D Holograms / volumetric displays

Researchers at Brigham Young University in Utah made something they’re calling an Optical Trap Display (OTD). The device traps a tiny opaque particle in mid-air using an invisible laser beam, then moves the beam around a preset path in free space. At the same time, it illuminates the particle with red, green, or blue lights. Read more about Scientists Found a Way to Make Inexpensive, Solid-Looking 3D Holograms / volumetric displays[…]

Asus Bezel-Free Kit uses illusion to hide bezels in multimonitor setups

The concept is simple. Thin lenses are placed along the seams where screens meet; they contain optical micro-structures that refract light, bending it inward to hide the bezels underneath. […] The kit’s optical obfuscation is designed to work at a specific angle. We selected 130° because it offered the best balance of comfort and immersion Read more about Asus Bezel-Free Kit uses illusion to hide bezels in multimonitor setups[…]

Does your monitor unplug from HDMI when you turn it off and mess up your desktop? Monitordetectkiller is the solution!

Remove Monitor Detection EDID override turn off disable monitor auto detect remove windows monitor autodetect The computer detects when a TV/monitor is ‘turned off’ or ‘switched’ to another input. Then when powered-on or switched back, it gives the wrong resolution or breaks your extended display to reflect the single monitor, there may even be crashes Read more about Does your monitor unplug from HDMI when you turn it off and mess up your desktop?

Researchers Discover a Method That Could Triple Our Screen Resolutions

The researchers have outlined the technical details in a new study published in Nature. Basically, what they’ve done is figure out a method to control subpixels with voltage. Each pixel on an LCD screen contains three subpixels. Each of those subpixels handles one of three colors: red, green or blue. A white backlight shines through Read more about Researchers Discover a Method That Could Triple Our Screen Resolutions[…]

World’s thinnest hologram paves path to new 3D world – RMIT University

Now a pioneering team led by RMIT University’s Distinguished Professor Min Gu has designed a nano-hologram that is simple to make, can be seen without 3D goggles and is 1000 times thinner than a human hair. “Conventional computer-generated holograms are too big for electronic devices but our ultrathin hologram overcomes those size barriers,” Gu said.

Projection mapping on a moving surface

This research aims at overcoming this limitation and realizes dynamic projection mapping in which dynamically-changing real-world and virtual visual information are completely merged in the level of human visual perception. This high-speed dynamic projection mapping requires a high-speed projector enabling high-frame-rate and low-latency projection. In order to meet this demand, we have developed a high-speed Read more about Projection mapping on a moving surface[…]

PrintScreen: print touch screens on anything, including paper

PrintScreen is an enabling technology for digital fabrication of customized flexible displays using thin-film electroluminescence (TFEL). It enables inexpensive and rapid fabrication of highly customized displays in low volume, in a simple lab environment, print shop or even at home. We show how to print ultra-thin (120 um) segmented and passive matrix displays in greyscale Read more about PrintScreen: print touch screens on anything, including paper[…]

Sharp Develops Free-Form Display, Enables Vastly Greater Design Freedom for Displays

Sharp announces the development of the Free-Form Display, a device that can be shaped to meet a wide range of user needs thanks to the incorporation of IGZO technology and proprietary circuit design methods. Conventional displays are rectangular because they require a minimal width for the bezel in order to accommodate the drive circuit, called Read more about Sharp Develops Free-Form Display, Enables Vastly Greater Design Freedom for Displays[…]
