Samsung’s Mirror Displays get installed in Korean salon

We've seen a lot of different styles and methods people have used to create mirrors, most of them in the bathroom, that also functioned as some sort of display. Almost all of them have one thing in common however. Or two, actually. They are all DIY projects, and almost none of them are commercially available. Samsung, however, might have just taken out the excitement behind those projects. It has recently unveiled what it bills as the first public and commercial installation of its Mirror Display solution that combines both mirror and monitor into one.

In fact, sources are claiming that the OEM is about to unleash a fourth "Xperia X" model. After the base Xperia X, the beefier Xperia X Performance, and the more budget-friendly Xperia XA comes the Xperia X Premium. If that name reminds you of the Xperia Z5 Premium, then you'd be correct. It takes after its "predecessor" not by having a 4K screen but by having the first HDR screen on a smartphone.

DisplayMate crowns 9.7-inch iPad Pro the best LCD display

It is really no surprise that the newest and smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro would outperfrom the iPad Air 2 in the display department, since it does outrank it everywhere else except in price. It is, however, perhaps unexpected that this iPad Pro would also trump all other LCD displays, including the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro (except in one case). That is definitely the finding that DisplayMate reached with the iPad Pro, claiming unambiguously that it was by far the best performing LCD screen they have ever tested.

Well, it might look like these 21.3-inch screens in a prototype from Thales, a French aerospace company.

Researchers create robotic octopus skin that’s soft, stretchy, and changes colors

Researchers create robotic octopus skin that’s soft, stretchy, and changes colors

A team of scientists at Cornell University have developed a skin-like material that is not only soft, flexible, and capable of stretching to six times its original size, but features robotics such as color-changing displays and pressure sensitivity.
