Canon to Launch Augmented-Reality Platform Based on Head-Mounted Displays "The virtual images are shown to users using two tiny display panels that sit just above the eyes. The images from the display panels are carefully aligned with user's point of view, to keep the virtual world aligned with the real one. This camera-display combination allows the platform to display virtual items and shapes as though they are being viewed at the correct size and angle, even as users change position." via PCWorld

Sony, Panasonic to Team up to Mass-produce OLED TV Panels "The companies aim to develop an effective way to print large panels that use OLEDs, or organic light-emitting diodes, by next year, they said in a statement. They signed an agreement Monday that includes sharing their technology and jointly researching mass production techniques." via PC World

Leaked Slide Sheds New Light On RIM’s First BlackBerry 10 Devices "...the slide notes that the L-series BlackBerry (previously known as the London) would sport an OLED display running at the same 1280×768 resolution as the alpha hardware. That display manages to cram 356 pixels into every inch, which also confirms that the L-series device will have a 4.2-inch display panel. The slide also offers up a few details about what RIM has planned for their forthcoming keyboard-toting N-series model, perhaps most notably that the phone’s OLED display will run at 720 x 720 with a pixel density of 330 ppi. Crunching the numbers points to a screen that’s just a shade under 3.1 inches diagonal, making it the largest display to go on a more traditionally designed BlackBerry (the touch-friendly Torch series had larger 3.7-inch displays).via TechCrunch

Clear Channel Airports announced it will implement a first-of-its kind digital advertising program at Denver International Airport "The installation plan includes more than 118 LCD screens throughout the airport, including 70-inch freestanding LCDs throughout level six of Jeppesen Terminal, six post-security overhead ultra-thin bezel video walls on the soffits of the A, B, and C Concourses and four 26-foot diagonal high-definition LED video towers formed around the Great Hall elevator columns. Denver International Airport will have the largest digital footprint of any North American airport, according to the company." via Digital Signage Connection

Why developing countries embrace mobile banking "More than half of the world's adults — 2.5 billion — are unbanked, according to research recently published by the World Bank Development Research Group. ...Instead of trying to coax these populations into getting on board with mainstream banking, many companies are finding new ways to provide them with financial services, whether it's deploying kiosks to help the unbanked cash checks, pay bills and transfer money, or offering mobile banking services that allow consumers to transfer money via smartphones. ...Consumers can load their MOM m-wallets with cash at one of 82,000 retail touch points (expected to be 2 million by year's end) and use it to pay for electricity, gas and mobile bills and top-ups, as well as airline, bus and movie tickets." via Self Service World
