Daily readers will know that we have a love-hate relationship with 3D and the growing availability of glasses-free 3D gadgets. While it's certainly great to not have to don dorky eyewear, 3D on glasses-free devices have a limited field of view. LG's 20-inch 3D display solves that issue with a eye-tracking.
Dave Forbes' LED TV coat is what it sounds like: a gigantic wearable TV, made up of LEDs wrapped around a lab coat.
The same guys who make the display that powers Amazon's Kindle have managed to imprint functional e-ink onto cloth, meaning that clothing with designs that you can update, or even clothing that streams video, is just around the corner.
There's no doubt in my mind bendable displays will be the norm in the not too distant future. Remember Fujitsu's chubby little foldable laptop concept? Niels van Hoof is thinking along the same lines with his "Feno" folding laptop concept.
A transparent photovoltaic film that lives on top of traditional displays could provide substantial amounts of power to mobile devices. By substantial, we mean that as long as you spend enough time outside, you might never have to charge your phone ever again.
By hooking a Kinect sensor up to one of those funky spherical Pufferfish displays, the Technology Studio in the UK has built itself a desktop version of the unblinking Eye of Sauron, which follows you around with its gaze. It's almost creepy enough to make you want to turn invisible.
Everything is better if you can stuff it into your mouth without having to deal with shards of plastic and glass, and a research group from the University of Tokyo has developed what they're calling an "edible display."
Your fancy 3D TV is really a far cry from 3D, only giving you two slightly different viewpoints of a single, flat scene to create the illusion of depth and being able to see around corners. A new system that uses multiple projectors and fog displays full color 3D images that you can walk all the way around.
This six foot tall holographic display system is large enough to display people at pretty close to life size. It could be your big screen holographic TV and your first holographic phone system, all in one.
All those 3DTVs and virtual reality goggles are soon to be rendered obsolete by contact lenses with built-in LED arrays that can display images on top of your retinas, whether you want them to or not.
