The Daily Slash: July 21st 2010

The Daily Slash: July 21st 2010

It's the middle of the week already, but we're studiously counting down the days until the end of the month. There are going to be quite a few exciting things in August, and we're hoping for even a couple surprises, so you'll have to forgive our foresight. But, let's try to stay focused on the present, at least for a little while longer. Welcome to the Wednesday night edition of The Daily Slash. Tonight, in the Best or R3 Media, we've got Android 2.1 on a bevy of devices, more iPhone rumors, and absolutely no cellphones for prisoners. And then in the Dredge 'Net, we're getting better gesture control soon, Microsoft comes clean on Kinect and hardcore gamers.

Nanocoating Inspired by Moths Could Reduce Glare and Scratching on Glass

Nanocoating Inspired by Moths Could Reduce Glare and Scratching on Glass

While we love our AMOLED displays, we hate using them in direct sunlight. It's way too frustrating, because everything on the screen gets washed out, and we can no longer see what we're doing without tilting it all crazy-like, making people stare at us. So, consider us pretty happy that some scientists across the pond have created a new nanocoating that could get rid of our troubles for good.

AMOLED with integrated camera for interactive eyeglasses

AMOLED with integrated camera for interactive eyeglasses

The Fraunhofer Institute has been demonstrating a bi-directional OLED microdisplay, squeezing not only display pixels but camera photodiodes into the array.  Currently a 320 x 240 prototype panel capable of 8-bit color, the Fraunhofer AMOLED could be used for heads-up displays, integrated into eyeglasses or used to track eye movement and perception in drivers.

Basically, the photodiodes each fit into a 12.4 micrometer gap between the 38.7 micometer OLED pixels.  That allows the panel to both display information and capture an image of whatever is looking at it.

Triple-LCD setup boosts performance by over 35% claim researchers

Triple-LCD setup boosts performance by over 35% claim researchers

While many people are still struggling to find the desk space (and money) for a dual-monitor setup, according to Fujitsu and the Fraunhofer IAO laboratory we should actually be squeezing three displays into our workspace if we want real performance improvements.  Compared to users completing tasks on a single 19-inch LCD, those with three such screens linked together saw a 35.5-percent jump in efficiency.

iPoint Presenter uses gesture-based UI

iPoint Presenter uses gesture-based UI

If you're a lover of touch-based technology (and who isn't?) you'll love the latest design from Fraunhofer HHI, the iPoint Presenter. This tech utilizes a gesture-based interface to create an experience straight out of Minority Report.

The screen is projected and you would then interact with this screen. By using infrared, the user's gestures with their bare hands can be detected on the screen. It's pretty cool stuff, actually and it looks a lot like an iPhone on your wall.

‘Anti-Sound’ silences wind turbines

‘Anti-Sound’ silences wind turbines

Wind power is growing at record speed. Texas even has plans to connect its remote area turbines to the grid in order to bring in massive amounts of energy. And despite these positive developments, one thing prevents wind power from being accepted with open arms. It’s the noise.

Transparent OLED

Transparent OLED

Researchers in the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany are working on the next generation of OLED technology, where it can be completely transparent and be turned on and off at anytime.This OLED technology would be really good in assisting the display of specific information. This allows OLED to display information as needed and turn off when not in use, without interfering with the main picture and automobile windshields with built-in displays. This would be most certain to be replacing the current LCD technology as OLED's are much better than LCDs in terms of longetivity.
