Smart Fingers Concept Lets You Pinch to Measure

Explaining the size of an object has often been an inexact science, but, according to Wired, the Smart Fingers concept could change that. A pair of plastic tubes that slide onto your finger and thumb (or any finger, really), the Smart Fingers measure the distance between each them by beaming a signal from one finger to the other. Finally, we'll know how big "This big!" really is. The measurement,...

Art Lebedev Readies $1,000 'Bargain' Keyboard With Screens for Keys

You may or may not remember all the hoopla that surrounded the Optimus Maximus, the first keyboard to consist entirely of tiny OLED screens, which allowed users to alter the layout of the keyboard while displaying a variety of small, animated widgets. But, at $2,400, not many people were snatching up the bulky, while undeniably cool, typing tool. Now the Russian design firm Art Lebedev is back...

Sony's Ultrathin OLED Screen Can Unroll Like a Scroll

Last month, we showed you a thin, bendable projection screen for mobile gaming. Now, it appears this design might signal the future of video displays. According to The New York Times, researchers at Sony have developed a 4-inch-wide, ultra-thin screen that can be wrapped around and rolled. Boasting a 432x240 pixel resolution, it's fully operational and the quality stays sharp whether it's spread...

Video Games Go Back to the Board(game) With Projection Tech

Have your 'Magic: The Gathering' soirees been lacking that 21st-century flare? Are your Dragon Mages and Hill Giants suffering from an oppressive want of interactivity? Well, researchers from Canada's Queen's University have been developing an immersive technology that will merge traditional board and card games with the dynamic interfaces of your favorite MMORPGs. Professor Roel Vertegaal and...

CES Has More Laptops Than Vegas Does Broken Dreams

While 3-D TVs and slate PCs stole most of the attention at CES, there were plenty of interesting developments afoot in the normally mundane world of laptops and netbooks. (Yes, we're lumping them together. What is a netbook but a laptop for people with nothing to do but check Facebook?) There were laptops made out of recycled plastics, new connectivity technologies, surprising Linux demos, and...

CES Day 2 Highlights, Part One

It was a long and exciting first day at CES, with the Palm Pre proving to be the biggest announcement made at the show. It certainly made us do a double (and triple) take, but there's plenty more to report and lots of surprises still to come. Grippity Keyboard Reinvents Typing - There's a very strong chance you're sitting in front of a keyboard right now as you read this, and while the...

LG to Produce Super-Slim 15-Inch OLED TV This Summer

Has your $2,500 XEL-1 display already started to show a case of the dimming blues? If so, and if you can go without seeing Cookie Monster in his natural hue for a few more months, you may have another OLED replacement option after this summer. LG is indicating it will begin producing a 15-inch panel in June of this year. No word on whether it'll match the Sony's 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, but it...

Is this Sony's New Touchscreen Walkman?

Sony's Walkman series of media players has done its best to keep stride, stuffing in new features and design refinements over the years, but touchscreen-dominated players are clearly in vogue, and it looks like the company is finally ready to break down and get touchable. According to the Sony stalkers over at Sony Insider, there will be 16 and 32GB touchscreen Walkman players at CES 2009 this...

GE Creates OLED Printer

Maybe the incandescent light bulb has been sitting in its socket-shaped throne for too many years -- GE thinks so, anyway. GE R&D guys have produced a machine that prints OLED materials newspaper-style onto 8-inch sheets of metal foil in hopes that the sheets -- which can be pinned to just about any surface -- will start the process of home lighting biz regime change in 2010. Picture, if you...

33-Story LED Screen Coming to Dubai (World's Largest)

By this point, you should fully understand that "Dubai" and "world's largest" go hand-in-hand, so it's quite fitting that said city is receiving the planet's most humongous LED screen. Designed by UAE development company Tameer Holding, the 33-story high display will reportedly be "embedded on an intended commercial tower in the Majan district of Dubailand," where it will stand tall and blast...

Sony Shows Off Bent 0.3mm OLED Screen

The last time we saw Sony's 0.3mm OLED protoype, it was encased in lasers and protected by deathbots in an underground prison of doom. This time around, Sony is showing off the razor-thin display for all at CEATEC to see, and they went all bendy on us. The new prototype has a curve to it, perhaps foretelling some curious plans for the technology in its expensive years ahead. Despite the curve,...

Kodak Launches World's First Super-Thin OLED Picture Frame

We figured it was coming, now sure enough, Kodak just let loose a new picture frame based on CMEL's new mass-produced, 7.6-inch OLED panels. Ultra-thin as you'd expect and wireless as you'd hope, the new 800 x 480 pixel Wireless Frame should be ready for the holidays sporting 2GB of internal storage, integrated audio, a 30,000:1 contrast, 180-degree viewing angle, and photo service compatibility...

Esquire's October Issue Debuts E-Ink-Infused Cover (Video)

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! (Sorry, but where else were we gonna use that line?) For those unaware, Esquire's October issue is on newsstands now, and 100,000 99,999 lucky souls out there will receive one with a flashing E Ink display. Just in case you aren't quite lucky enough to apprehend one of your own, however, The Dastardly Report's Ryan Joseph was kind enough to snap a few...

Sony Unveils 0.3mm Thick OLED Display

At D6 today Howard Stringer showed off a brand new "thinner than a credit card" 0.3mm thick OLED panel that Sony is working on. They're planning on a 27-inch version of the screen in the short term for the ultra-rich, but the obvious hope is to fight LCD for dominance in the home in the coming years. This could very well be that 11-inch 960 x 540 display we saw last month, but specs are slim at...

Samsung Demonstrates ePassport with Flexible OLED Display

It's been a tick since we've heard anything noteworthy on the e-passport front (that's probably a good thing, truth be told), but Samsung SDI and German security printer Bundesdruckerei are out to break the silence. The two have teamed up to demonstrate a passport that boasts a "slim and bendable" OLED color display within a "polycarbonate data page." Predictably, the aforementioned display can...
