HP announces Sprout—a truly innovative workstation
Toward a truly white organic LED: Physicists develop polymer with tunable colors
By inserting platinum atoms into an organic semiconductor, University of Utah physicists were able to "tune" the plastic-like polymer to emit light of different colors – a step toward more efficient, less ...
University of Akron researchers have developed new materials that function on a nanoscale, which could lead to the creation of lighter laptops, slimmer televisions and crisper smartphone visual displays.
Glasses-free 3-D TV looks nearer (w/ Video)
As striking as it is, the illusion of depth now routinely offered by 3-D movies is a paltry facsimile of a true three-dimensional visual experience. In the real world, as you move around an object, your perspective ...
MIT group's shape display steps to new realm in interaction future (w/ Video)
Future science: Using 3D worlds to visualize data
Take a walk through a human brain? Fly over the surface of Mars? Computer scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago are pushing science fiction closer to reality with a wraparound virtual world ...
3D printer wows world's top high-tech fair
Of all the futuristic gadgets on show at CeBIT, the world's top high-tech fair, few drew bigger crowds Tuesday than a 3D printer creating solid objects in plastic from a computer display.
Researchers discover a way to switch liquid crystals off faster
Creating high-resolution full-color moving holograms in 3-D
Three-dimensional (3D) movies, which require viewers to wear stereoscopic glasses, have become very popular in recent years. However, the 3D effect produced by the glasses cannot provide perfect depth cues. ...
NJIT researchers invent flexible battery made from carbon nanotubes
Researchers at NJIT have developed a flexible battery made with carbon nanotubes that could potentially power electronic devices with flexible displays.
Next generation 3-D theater: Optical science makes glasses a thing of the past
Even with current digital technology, the latest Hollywood blockbusters still rely on clunky glasses to achieve a convincing 3-D effect. New optics research by a team of South Korean investigators offers ...
Mobius strip ties liquid crystal in knots to produce tomorrow's materials and photonic devices
University of Warwick scientists have shown how to tie knots in liquid crystals using a miniature Möbius strip made from silica particles.
Graphene champions the next generation 3D display technology
Moving holograms like those used in 3D science fiction movies such as Avatar and Elysium have to date only been seen in their full glory by viewers wearing special glasses.
