Samsung has just announced a new pair of OLED displays with unique features: one is transparent and the other is a mirror. The mirrored display offers up a typical reflection of someone standing in front of it, but is also able to add augmented imagery overtop, like a necklace around the user's neck. The transparent display was demonstrated as a billboard ad, with advertising information appearing on a clear panel, and background scenery still visible.

Japan’s Takram develops paper-based input for projected display

The idea of collaborating with coworkers in person while using a tablet the size of a table-top has always sounded cool — it was Microsoft's first vision for the Surface, after all — but it's still likely to be a long ways off. However, Japanese design firm Takram has come up with an idea for an interactive digital table that is just as cool, but even more elegant in execution. It's completely based on paper, or rather "On the Fly Paper," and it developed for Intel's Japanese Collaboration Center.

ASUS 32-inch ProArt monitor offers full Adobe RGB colors in 4K

ASUS has just revealed an updated model of its 32-inch ProArt monitor (PA329Q), which still offers Ultra HD/4K (3840 x 2160) in 16:9, but now with the full Adobe RGB color gamut, making it an interesting option for its targeted professional market, as opposed to the last year's monitor with only sRGB.

Two new patent applications filed by Apple that reveal possible new products or features were published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this week.

Samsung’s profit slide saved by chip, display business

Samsung just released its financial performance for the first quarter of the year and, good news for Sammy and its fans, it has beat the rather negative analyst expectations. But it might be too soon to rejoice. While the Korean consumer electronics giant did seemingly beat the odds, it's smartphone business, believed to be the culprit for Samsung's decline, isn't looking any better. Instead, the company has its chips and LCD displays to thank for greeting 2015 with more of a bang instead of a flop.
