Scientists develop light-emitting tattoo with multiple potential uses

Researchers from UCL and IIT have created a temporary tattoo with light-emitting technology of the sort used in TV and smartphone screens. Scientists say that the technology paves the way for a new type of smart tattoo with a range of potential uses. The tech uses organic light-emitting diodes or OLEDs that are applied in the same way as water transfer tattoos.

iPhone 13 could use Always-On Display for clock, battery

iPhone 13 could use Always-On Display for clock, battery

The iPhone X back in 2017 was the first to fulfill the long-rumored move from LCD screens to OLED panels for Apple's iPhones. OLED technology has a couple of advantages over LCDs but one of the main ones remained unused in iPhones, at least so far. That could change in the iPhone 13, or at least the Pro models, which will employ new display technology that, together with OLED panels, can finally bring some Always-On Display or AOD functionality to iPhones.

Samsung under-display camera teased – but it’s not for phones

Ahead of its Unpacked event today, where the company is widely expected to reveal the new Galaxy S21 lineup, Samsung has been spotted teasing something of a completely different nature. While today should be most (if not wholly) about mobile hardware, Samsung Display is teasing OLED notebooks with a webcam under the display. This, as you can imagine, will come with a lot of benefits - assuming, of course, that Samsung can actually make it work well enough to warrant putting the webcam behind the display in the first place.

New pure-blue OLED could overcome current challenges for OLED displays

New pure-blue OLED could overcome current challenges for OLED displays

Current OLED displays have a challenge when it comes to blue light sources. While there are red and green organic light-emitting diodes with high performance, the availability of similarly performing blue light sources is lacking. Researchers in Japan have used a new combination of emitter molecules and demonstrated a new approach that may overcome this challenge.

iPad Pro could switch to OLED screens in late 2021

The tablet market has seen consistently positive figures, mostly in thanks to Apple and the iPad Pro's rapid development pace. The company's prosumer tablet seems to undergo big changes every iteration, even when those changes aren't exactly visible to the naked eye. Case in point will be the iPad Pros coming next year which have already been rumored to be moving to mini-LED displays. That might be a short-lived change, however, as there are now reports that Apple will again switch display technologies before 2021 is over.

These pixel-dense OLED displays could solve VR’s big headache

These pixel-dense OLED displays could solve VR’s big headache

When it comes to virtual reality displays, the screen door effect is a very real concern for manufacturers. The screen door effect gives certain displays a mesh-like appearance that's particularly noticeable when lower resolution displays are viewed up close, so while it can happen with any display, it's most prevalent in the world of VR. Stanford researchers have announced new tech that could result in OLED displays with pixel densities as high as 10,000 pixels per inch, thereby eliminating the screen door effect even when the display is viewed up close.
