We only recently learned about LG’s new 18-inch flexible display that can roll up like a magazine. It sounds crazy, but seeing it bend and twist in on video makes my heart palpitate.


Each Of These Images Is Smaller Than The Width Of A Human Hair

Oxford scientists just revealed a new kind of display technology that can render images smaller than the width of a human hair. The detailed images you see above were rendered on these flexible, nano-pixel displays. Would you believe that each one is smaller than the width of a human hair? And that’s only the beginning.


This Flexible 18-Inch Screen Rolls Into A Tube One Inch Across

The idea of truly flexible displays never gets boring. Now, LG has created its biggest bendable screen to date: an 18-inch OLED panel that has enough flexibility to roll into a tube that’s an inch across.

Rectangular screens are so square. That’s presumably why Sharp has announced a new technology called Free-Form Display that could allow screens to come in any space, and reduce bezel size to almost zero.


Sony SmartWatch Vs Galaxy Gear 2: Which Smartwatch Screen Is Best?

The floodgates for the next major smart device revolution are opening. And unless you have been living under a rock you already know that this time it’s a smart watch, a long overdue update to what is essentially 19th century wristwatch technology. There are already a fair number of early players in this new category — in this article we’ll examine how well the displays in two second generation smart watches from two top tier manufacturers perform: the Sony SmartWatch 2, with an LCD display, and the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2, with an OLED display.

New Light-Emitting Solar Cells Could Be Used As Smartphone Displays

In the future, the glass that coats our skyscrapers could also serve as the power plant that keeps the lights on. This is not news. However, with an amazing new material being developed in Singapore, that same glass could also turn your city’s windows into skyscraper-sized displays.


One Day, Your Smartphone's Screen Could Be Used To Test Blood

Patients who rely on the use of coagulants to limit the formation of blood clots in their veins also require frequent and regular trips to the hospital for tests to monitor their blood flow. It’s a time-consuming side effect that researchers at EPFL hope they have solved with a portable test that relies on a smartphone’s display’s unique properties.


Why A Single-Molecule LED Could Be A Big Deal

Technologically speaking, smaller is virtually always better. So it’s perhaps no surprise that scientists have developed the first ever single-molecule LED. But why is it potentially such a big deal?
