The Display Industry News Roundup for 8.1.2012

On-Lap 1302: a portable second display for laptops "Though the On-Lap 1302 display itself is rather ho-hum, you can have a two display setup wherever you go, even if you’re working out of your local library or coffee shop." via Macworld

Which do you prefer, LCD or AMOLED? "I know people who prefer AMOLED over LCD simply due to the fact that colors are more vibrant. But, I think I’m losing interest in AMOLED for that same reason. Using LCD displays, like the ones installed in the iPhone 4S or the One X, have turned me in their direction based off daily usage. I like realism, if that makes sense." via phonedog

Microsoft's Google Glass rival "Here's one crucial difference between Google's approach and Microsoft's: Google thinks the display should face your eyes, and Microsoft thinks the display should project outwards." via CNNMoney

Microsoft Research shapes future of HD displays "The 2,160-inch HD screen at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, cost $40 million. "What we're really interested in is a future where this is just wallpaper, and we can cover anything -- where this circuit here is incorporated into your wallpaper," according to the video demo." via Phys.org

Rumor: The Next iPhone Could Experience Delays Due To Limited Supply Of A Key Part Of The Screen "According to DigiTimes, several of the companies Apple relies on to produce display panels for the iPhone cannot generate enough of a profit from the new in-cell touch panels that are being used for the next iPhone. As a result, Apple's suppliers may not be able to ramp up production of these parts enough to meet the demands for the iPhone 5, which could delay shipments." via Business Insider

Tablet PC Boosts Safety and Productivity in Marine Exploration "In order to use a computer on a dive boat, it must have a sunlight-readable LCD display. The T7000's bright daylight-readable screen was well suited for use outdoors, and even in direct sunlight. During our week-long expedition we encountered a lot of bright sunshine as well as a good deal of saltwater splashing and dripping. The T7000 screen was up to the job and remained perfectly viewable under all conditions." via The Ruggedized Computing Blog

Apple MacBook AH-IPS Retina Panel Identified "Through a dismantling of the new MacBook Pro with Retina display, ifixit have identified that the panel being used appears to be an LG.Display (aka LG.Phillips) LP154WT1 (SJ)(A1) GD panel." via TFT Central

Test validates functionality of Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II/h "The JHMCS II/h allows a pilot to aim sensors and weapons wherever he or she is looking, through the use of new head-tracking technology and a display projected onto the helmet's visor. Produced by Vision Systems International (VSI), this system provides significantly improved ergonomics and reliability, at lower cost, than VSI’s prior JHMCS system." via Defence Professionals
