Quantum Dots Future of Samsung Displays

Behold, the Quantum Leap of our time! Researchers over at Samsung Electronics have been making a full-color display with none other than the elusive technology called quantum dots. What the heck is that all about? Quantum-dot displays, they say, are not only cheaper and more energy-efficient than the LCD displays found in today's common devices, they're brighter too! Samsung currently has a four-inch diagonal display whipped up that uses an active matrix, that is, each of its quantum-dot pixels is controlled with a thin-film transistor, and the entire prototype is made of flexible plastic so it can bend with ease!

Rightware Steroscopic 3D Interface Demo [Image and Video]

It appears that our good pals on CrunchGear have got their hands on an early set of images and video of Rightware's brand spanking new Stereoscopic 3D interface that'll be working hard at impressing everyone in the world via Barcelona over the next few days. This 3D interface will be working with Android, obviously, and is based on the Rightware Kanzi UI, which if you're unaware is a platform for displaying 3D user interfaces on mobile devices, specializing in the especially complex.

HTC considering E Ink and 3D displays/imaging for future devices?

HTC could be experimenting with E Ink displays for future devices, together with 3D-capable screens and imaging. A job advert has tipped the company's interest in alternative panel technologies, calling for a "Baseband Design Engineer" who will be responsible for the integration and evaluation of "new display and camera technologies for next-generation mobile devices."
"This engineer will work with other baseband engineers and other disciplines to design, architect, and evaluate advanced phone concepts. The qualified candidate will have experience in specifying the optical properties of mobile cameras and displays, be capable of measuring the performance of mobile cameras and displays, and be capable of integrating those components into prototype phone designs." HTC listing
As well as regular TFT-LCD, PMOLED and AMOLED displays, as we've already seen on HTC handsets, the company would prefer that the engineer also have aptitude with E Ink and "3D display and imaging technologies." Of course, it may be over-ambitious to assume an E Ink or 3D Android smartphone might be on the cards, but there's interesting potential for low-power displays used as at-a-glance status screens.

Dell Streak Pairs Up With A Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse – Video

Here’s another feature in the hat of the Dell Streak. You can connect a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to the massive 5 inch screen on the Streak. Currently, the mouse has no functionality but it still cool that it even recognizes it. A Bluetooth keyboard and a nice dock is a great combination. It almost acts as a mini desktop computer. The best part about this is there’s no hacking required. Apparently you just pair up your keyboard and you’re on your way. There is no lag when typing on the keyboard. Everything is displayed almost instantaneously. If you have a Streak, try it out. If you’re still waiting for it to arrive you now have an extra function to look forward too.
