Cooling fans.

Why Vidi-Touch use low noise cooling fan in case of 4K LCD Panel

Cooling Fans for 4K have a function to remove moisturizing or condensation problem between a tempered glass and LCD Panel. (Air circulation by cooling fans not only reduces the temperature but remove moisture and condensation problem) If a protective film or foil to avoid moisture is attached on the panel, it can impact on visibility of the Panel badly at first.

Microsoft demos 'holoportation' 3D presence tech with HoloLens.

The video embedded above shows cool new HoloLens tech from Microsoft Research, which can create 3D models of people in remote locations and project them into the room you're in -- tech that could be used for games as well as Skype-like video conferencing, the use that it is put to in the demo.

HoloLens, at $3,000, is still far from being a consumer product -- but this demo shows the appeal and its potential for game developers.

What's also notable here is that there are views of the in-device experience periodically in the bottom-left corner of the window, giving a more "honest" look at what the experience will actually feel like.

It's also worth noting that Meta has developed similar remote-meeting technology for its AR glasses, which we got to try out at GDC -- and which worked well. That company is currently taking preorders for its new dev kit at $949.

Augmented & Virtual Reality Report - Forecast for 2025 | Goldman Sachs.

Virtual Reality ( VR ) and Augmented Reality ( AR ) have different use cases, technologies and market opportunities so it's important to distinquish between the two.

Virtual Reality immerses a user in an imagined or replicated world ( like videogames or movies ) or simulates presence in the real world ( like watching a sporting event live). Examples of hardware players in VR are Oculus. Sony Play Station VR, HTC Vive and Samsung Gear VR.

Augmented Reality overlays digital imagery onto the real world. Examples of hardware players in AR are Microsoft HoloLens, Google Glass and Magic Leap.

Showroom floors: to inform and convince.

Replacing traditional showroom signage with digital displays has several advantages. With digital signage users can upload and manage content remotely and reduce the costs of constantly printing new signs. In addition, you have the ability to be more creative with your promotional content.

Grocery stores could use their digital displays to show cooking tutorials or products on display. Auto dealerships can enhance the entire car buying experience for customers with live social media. Place two screens in different areas and label them “test drivers” and “new car owners.” Have the salesperson take photos after each scenario and add them to your live social media wall.

Below is a video on how Beverly Hills Porsche uses Enplug’s digital displays in their showroom.

Thats one well done dimensional effect between the wall and the floor... loving the art, the fact they used blacks for the animations on a clear white background for a change to see & lighten the dancer and make it all more natural looking. seriously thats some the best work in this field I've seen! although This was obviously made for a video, as its not possible to fix those distortions both for front and side views...

Samsung showroom 837 - NYC

This is Samsung 837, where technology and culture collide.

Located in the heart of the Meatpacking district in NYC, Samsung 837 combines art, fashion, technology, and sport in unprecedented ways. It’s not a store, but a new kind of place filled with ideas, experiences, and Samsung’s cutting edge devices.

Samsung 837 is where anyone can try out virtual reality, take part in interactive art installations, and see a larger-than-life, three-story screen. It’s home to live music performances, exclusive screenings, and radio recordings.

The building was designed by renowned architecture firm Wonderwall and features an amphitheater area, VR tunnel, DJ booth, customer service and workshop area, and café.

Sony turns tables into touchscreens.


Sony Corporation has created a tabletop, interactive display using a projector, depth sensors and motion tracking. The prototype was unveiled at the SXSW Interactive Festival, March 11 to 15, 2016 in Austin, Texas and was demonstrated under Sony’s Future Lab Program that was launched at the beginning of the month.

A demonstration to technology, science, art, and culture publication The Verge showed the digital content interacting with a hard copy of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Characters are shown to walk off the page and on to the table and can be moved and manipulated by responsive touch control.

The Future Lab Program behind the demonstration was set up to encourage a creative approach to technology research and development.

Sony says that part of the approach is to share concept prototypes with users while still at the development stage. The company will then use the feedback for further inspiration, refinement and evolution of the products.

The projected tabletop display was the second project from the Future Lab Program, with the first also showcased at the SXSW Interactive Festival. The first project, known as "N," is a concept prototype featuring a hands-free user interface that creates a new way of experiencing audio such as music and sound, allowing the user to receive audio information without having to insert any object into their ear.

DS12K projectors integrated into the stage floor illuminate the stage backdrop, without casting shadows thanks to the LE90 ultra short throw lens technology.

Robot applications, like this are becoming more accessible for every event, thanks to companies like XPION and its RobEX package.

Korea Seizes AMOLED Market, Occupies 95% of Global Market.

This year, Korea is expected to secure overwhelming leadership position within the global AMOLED panel market with 95% market share.

According to 2016 OLED Display Annual Report, recently published by UBI Research, approximately 270 million units of AMOLED panel are to be produced from Korea in 2016, approximately 95% of the global shipment.

For AMOLED panel market revenue, Korea is estimated to occupy 96% of the total market in 2016 with US$ 14,218 million. Korea is expected to maintain approximately over 70% of the market share until 2020, and lead the global market for several more years.

This is analyzed to be due to active response by Korean display companies against AMOLED application expansion by influential global smartphone companies.

Samsung Electronics is forecast to sell over 47 million units of AMOLED panel equipped Galaxy series in 2016. The projection that Apple will also apply AMOLED panel to future iPhone series for product differentiation is gaining traction.

navigation on your windscreen.

Since they have been equipped with GPS, smartphones have also become the vogue in navigating. We always carry those handy all-rounders with us anyway, and there are a lot of free navigation programs – so a separate navigation device isn’t really necessary. Or is it?
One thing at any rate that navigating via your smartphone cannot give you is greater safety: Typing while driving is not really advisable, to put it mildly. That’s why a US start-up now launched Carloudy. It’s a flat device which is placed on the dashboard and transforms your windscreen into a display screen. The tool is operated via voice control, so your hands can stay on the wheel. Data is transmitted via Bluetooth from the smartphone to the Carloudy E-ink display. The device projects full navigation onto the windscreen, complete with speed limits, roadworks, petrol stations, etc. According to the manufacturer, the device also has no problems coping with changing light conditions, which is a point where many head-up displays fail – and all that without consuming a lot of power. A funding campaign on Kickstarter is still running, advance orders can already be placed.

beautiful emptiness

Literally central to the work of Michael and Florian Quistrebert is a triptych of three screens. This flame make ever-changing colors. I think it's good, because they show how skillfully abstract image shaping and projecting. Without pretense of a deeper layer, moreover, they call it not for nothing Void Fires. This approach works fine as decorative moving art. Put it down at the airport or in the office lobby!

Haptoclone - First 'touchable' hologram.

Scientists in Japan have created the first 'touchable' hologram, enabling users to experience the illusion of touching objects that aren't really there.

The Haptoclone, created by haptic researchers from the University of Tokyo's Department of Complexity Science and Engineering, consists of two boxes, one containing an object and the other displaying a hologram of it.

When a human hand comes into "contact" with the 3D image in the second box, the hologram emits ultrasonic radiation pressure, making the user feel they are actually touching the object. Meanwhile, special aerial imaging panels act like a kind of mirror, making a hologram of the hand appear visually in the other box, too, so it can "interact" with the original object.

The technology seems remarkably realistic – a Gizmodo reporter said she could tell that the holographic ball she was interacting with was made of inflated plastic just by "touching" it.

For the moment, Haptoclone is limited due to it only being able to emit safe levels of radiation, meaning the tactile sensations are reduced to a light stroking rather than a handshake or a hug.

Skateboarding - a light session.

Disney’s Tron Legacymovie premiere was the perfect opportunity to debut this project. Inspired by Tron’s aesthetic, the ramp was transformed into a seamless canvas of light and sound, directly trigged by the skateboarder’s movements. Using our custom built hardware/software each rider is equipped with infra-red sensors and iPod, allowing us to track the riders position and air time. Our aim is to enhance the spectacle that is skateboarding, and evolve the rider’s experience.

Fivestone Studios is the winner of Planar’s Clear Concept Competition.

When we heard about the competition, we knew we had to participate. It involved conceptualizing an interactive design, and physical installation showcasing their Planar® LookThru™ Series, which are technologically progressive, transparent OLED touchscreens. It was so innovative and so cool, we felt like the product was created with Fivestone in mind. So we assembled a team across the U.S., from Atlanta, Nashville and Austin, to create something that would truly wow people.

The product allows consumers to see content on the display, and through it. This allows a gorgeous interactive design interface to be designed with physical products in the background. We told you this was envisioned for Fivestone. The technology allows a cutting edge immersive experience. Multiple elements such as elegant interior design, design and animation on screen, projection mapping, and powerful products can be synergized into one environment.

We felt that a great use of Planar’s brilliant technology would be in a car show room, because it would give the opportunity to leverage the full spectrum of opportunities described above. So, we came up with The Dragon Lair.

The Dragon Lair is inspired by a vision of elegant, clean technology. Utilizing a modern luxury car showroom, the environment features six Look Thru™ OLED panels, perfectly staged in front of a 2017 Dragon (fictional luxury vehicle), with gorgeous imagery illuminating behind it, creating the most technologically immersive experience a car enthusiast has ever imagined.

Tablets Are Dead.

In 2010, tablets were supposed to be the new hot thing. Apple released the first iPad, Samsung was working on the Galaxy Tab and countless others were about to flood the market with Android tablets. Six years later, there weren’t any tablets at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Companies and consumers have moved on. Tablets are dead.

To be fair, if you looked hard enough, you could find an Android tablet or two hidden in a corner of the Fira Gran Via. And Apple, the tablet leader, doesn’t come to MWC. But it’s safe to say that tablets are not the future for the Samsungs and LGs of the consumer electronics world.

In fact, Samsung, Sony, HTC and LG didn’t have any new tablet to announce. They didn’t even mention tablets during their conferences. It’s not just that people don’t care about tablets anymore — the big electronics companies themselves aren’t even trying to release new products for this market anymore.

Sure, Lenovo released some cheap Android tablets, but it seems like nobody noticed. Huawei announced the MateBook, but this isn’t technically a tablet — it’s a Surface Pro-like device running Windows 10 for laptops.

And yet, it wasn’t always like that. Remember how people were excited about the Nexus 7?

I’d have a hard time naming the most recent flagship Android tablets from some of the biggest tablet makers. After a bit of Internet searching, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, the LG G Pad II and the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet are real things and were all released last year.

Could I tell you which one is the best? Not a chance.

There are a few reasons why tablets have become so unpopular. First, tablets are now a commodity. You can find dozens of perfectly fine tablets for less than $200. And there’s no differentiating factor between Android tablets. As a result, companies are not making a profit on them.

Second, chances are you already have a tablet at home and it’s working fine. There’s no reason why you should upgrade it — it probably runs Netflix, Facebook and the Kindle app. It has a browser and your emails. Long replacement cycles mean you don’t need to pay attention to the new and shiny tablets.

Third, phones are getting bigger. The LG G5 (5.3-inch display) and Samsung Galaxy S7 (5.1-inch display) are the two most interesting flagship phones that were announced at Mobile World Congress. The first Samsung Galaxy Note had a 5.3-inch display. At the time, we called it a phablet. Today, it would be an average phone. Big phones are the new normal, and everybody uses their phones constantly to interact with other people and do everything they’d do on a tablet.

I find myself using my phone more even though my iPad is within arm’s reach. It’s just easier to deal with one device instead of two. I read more on my iPhone than on any other device. I’ve also written posts on my phone because I’m so used to the small keyboard.

So it’s time to face the truth. Tablets had a good run, but won’t be around for much longer. The iPad is still selling well, but Apple is trying hard to differentiate the iPad from the iPhone, creating the next generation of laptops.

Arguably, the iPad is a better tablet than any of the Android tablet I mentioned in this post. The Pixel C is a good-looking tablet, but there aren’t many tablet-optimized apps on the Play Store. This is key to understanding the iPad’s appeal.

Tablets can still make a comeback. They need to become good laptop replacements, or a digital canvas for artists, or something else. But something needs to change and soon. Current tablets prove that you should never bet against the smartphone.
