Samsung is realized that bigger isn’t necessarily better. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note Edge which has a 5.6 inches display plus thin screen shaped like a strip along the edge, at 45 degree edge. This worked best when the main screen was turned off – swipe the edge and the time appears. This is perfect as a discreet bedside clock, though a bit pricier than most alarm clocks around.
The edge screen can also be used to display notifications along the strip when you’re watching a movie on the main screen. There’s also a toolbox panel of sorts that offers up quick buttons that turn the panel into a ruler, stopwatch, timer, flashlight and voice recorder.
Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology published article where report about new approach to production of holograms. It can lead to creation of color holographic video display, in production of much less expensive, than today’s displays. By the words of Daniel Smalley, the main author of article, by using this new equipment, it is possible to create a prototype of the color holographic video display with the permission of standard clearness and with a frequency of 30 frames per second. The basis of display is the optical chip Smalley made from everything, which was at hand. As a result, the main detail of the new device turned out really cheap – about $10. Each holographic video display is constructed on the principle of operation of the spatial modulator of light. The light focuses diffraction light for point formation in three-dimensional space.
The touch screens are rather convenient invention of the person. But, unfortunately, their form is rather static: it is only flat screen, though touch. But, it is quite possible, that now everything will change. Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology of Dary Dend and Rob Hemsli created the revolutionary flexible display, which they designated as the elastic display. Feature of the flexible display is that it is capable to change a form then without effort to come back to an initial condition. Screen surface so elastic, that the user can extend it, press and squeeze. The principle of work consists in the following. There is a 3D projector from above the display, which role consists in tracking of manipulations, which are made by the person.
