MultiTaction 55-inch Multi-Touch Display Can Track Hundreds of Fingers "A key problem with touch displays is the detrimental effects of extraneous ambient light, he said. Another MultiTouch technology, Hybrid Tracking, combats this problem by alternating between tracking reflections and tracking shadows, a technique which ignores most external lighting, according to the company." via PCWorld

LG Spectrum: 4.5-inch IPS LCD pips Retina Display PPI count, borders on Galaxy Nexus size "Its also got a massive PPI (pixels per inch) count, packing in more detail than an iPhone Retina Display across a larger area. That said, we’re sure that your average pair of eyes won’t be able to notice much of a difference between the iPhone 4 / 4S’s 326 PPI and the Spectrum’s 329 PPI." via recombu

AIS Offers a 20.1” Rugged Rack Mounted LCD Display for Military, Naval Combat, Army and Airborne Applications "American Industrial Systems Inc. (AIS) is an ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier and manufacturer of a 20.1” rugged rack mount LCD display (1600x1200 UXGA), which is designed to perform in harsh environments and extreme conditions for specific naval combat, army and airborne applications." via mfrtech

SunBrite announces Signature line of outdoor LCD TVs, let you get your real housewives fix rain or shine "The televisions are built to withstand whatever mother nature can throw at them thanks to a high-impact resin exterior and dual cooling fans robust enough for the TVs to handle temperatures as low as 10 below or as high as 122 degrees. Called the Signature line, there are 55-inch, 46-inch, and 32-inch models that do 1080p and come with the standard array of connections: HDMI, component A/V, S-Video, composite video, and VGA." via engadget

WOLED "A WOLED display generates color by using a color filter. The downside of using a color filter is light absorption of about 70% on a typical LCD. LGE’s announcement mentions “4-Color Pixels” and I believe that’s code for RGBW. This is not implemented at the OLED level but only at the color filter level. The white is absolutely necessary because a 55-inch WOLED TV will require a tremendous amount of power to generate enough brightness that is equivalent to a 55-inch LCD TV." via DisplayBlog

Intel including touch screen capabilities in future ultrabooks "Despite some thoughts that raising your arm to touch a laptop screen wouldn't be ergonomic, Intel's done testing that shows people don't mind. Given the expanded touch capabilities built into Windows 8, we wouldn't be surprised to see this technology make it into consumer's hands sometime this year, but Intel didn't say when these models might be available." via TheVerge

ComQi Builds “Magical” Mirrors Into Offer "The technology and concept is actually more than a decade old, with its roots in the Interactive Institute Stockholm, in Sweden. This version of it was developed in conjunction with the Creative Advisor Group, an Interactive Institute Stockholm spin-off. The app has been configured to run on ComQi’s EnGage digital signage platform." via SixteenNine
