We've all heard of mini USB, but it looks like there might be another miniature version of a standard plug on the way. It's called Mini HDMI and this prototype might just be included with portable devices in the near future.
Wow! This thing is huge! Shinoda Plasma Corporation has decided to continue to push the plasma format and one up themselves with their latest prototype, that is really rather impressive. Measuring in at 145-inches, this display is actually six separate displays combined to create one big screen.
The same research group responsible for the Android e-ink prototype have returned with a scalable multitouch system, offering the accuracy of the iPhone on a potential scale more akin to Microsoft's Surface. Moto Labs' multitouch display uses capacitive touch, via a grid of tiny wires that recognize points of contact from any number of fingers.

A prototype 2006 Apple MacBook Pro has shown up on eBay, bearing a beta wireless card and green logic board. The laptop is believed to have been constructed to test out the new wireless card, which is labeled as "M35B Dusty Client DVT Wireless Sample".
Kenwood have unveiled a prototype speaker system that doubles as OLED lighting. The system, co-developed by Kenwood and Professor Junti Kido from Yamagata University in Japan, uses 80-percent less power than traditional lighting, as well as being noisier than your typical desk lamp.
Sanyo showed off a pretty impressive piece of technology in Japan today with their latest prototype projector. This projector is capable of full HD images at 16:9 and 1080p. But that's not the cool part. What's cool is this projector has a super short-throw. I mean, really short.
An animated poster made up of LEDs and OLEDs could be the next huge billboard frustration, if Dai Nippon Printing have their say. The Japanese firm have built a prototype panel which mimics animation by selectively illuminating different parts of the printed image, in this case the home stadium of the Rakuten Eagles baseball team.
The story behind the Lenovo Pocket Yoga has emerged, courtesy of Johnson Li, Director of Lenovo’s Beijing Innovation Center where the first blurry images of the netbook were snapped. Despite what the images released earlier today might suggest, the Pocket Yoga is no new design but in fact a two year old concept.
Mitsubishi have been demonstrating a "3D Touch Panel" that can recognize both direct contact and finger proximity. Based on a mainstream 5.7-inch 640 x 480 capacitive touch panel, the new proximity tech can sense a finger up to 20mm from the screen surface as well as the speed at which it is moving. Mitsubishi envisage the system being used for mobile devices, with proximity used to control a mouse pointer or possibly bring up a context menu.
