Hi guys
I'm currently doing an assignment on screens and part of it is on the future designs and impact on the industry.
At the moment i have:
  • OLED
  • Quantum Dot display
  • Tactile screens
  • Holographic displays

What other ones do you reckon will impact the industry?
Thanks
James

Graphene instead of organic polymers, at some stage in the next decade.

Also don't be trapped into the current form factors of screens, 

Flexible e-ink  and IMOD are worth mentioning

Screens will go the way of dinosaur 

I am eagerly awaiting Google Augmented reality glasses with built in smartphone display.
maybe bluetooth linked to physical phone in pocket initially

in this case screen size is irrelevant

Innovation is inevitable: Soap bubble screen.

I think the push for higher resolutions is going to hit a wall pretty soon and not go anywhere as it starts to play second fiddle to different technologies where the term resolution isn't used in the traditional sense. No idea what that will mean, but i think the term 'resolution' will become like 'refresh rate' did. 

Incidentally, the human touch, and interaction, with a screen is still very much at play today. Whether that be directly on a small scale screen on an 'i' device or indirectly through the remote for our TV's. This relatively intimate experience is something i'd like to see more development on. The human haptic experience is incredibly intuitive but we are all inherently lazy creatures and to think of/say something comes much more naturally. There could be an interesting argument here on whether our laziness is a byproduct of technology allowing it so to simplify our lives even more. As in, were people in the 50's less lazy because they had to stand to change the channel on their TV's but we grew lazier as the remote was developed and if thought controlled processes were implemented we'd get lazier. Stream of consciousness rant over now.

scary thought

every wall in your house is a screen - floor to ceiling with camera
the walls can be used for video-phone calls,



now the scary bit

your wife can project a virtual image of herself to keep giving you instructions or reminders no matter what room you go to to escape.

the really scary bit

she could automate these reminders in her absence.

Although they may be all new types of screens and Ultra Definition/super high definition Blu-Ray/TV's, non 3D glasses TV's etc aren't they all hamstrung by the lack of content and more importantly nicely priced content that is available for them.

There is a price point people will go for the content and/or cost to supply content that may slow down the growth?

The next bit move in this space will be integration between junk rather than more display flap.

I agree with the suggestion that glasses are going to come, but they're going to have to address vision issues at the same time and be as robust as a normal pair of glasses, eg not have to be recharged twice a day just to work.

Our last to TV purchases have been smaller in size than budget. By choice we didn't want the display taking over the space.

What I do want is real integration between devices.

For example I want to be able to throw stuff from my netbook at my TV. Skype call, throw the video at my TV at the same time as using the camera on my other device.

I want to be able to control my TV from all my devices. If my phone is at hand, press the 'voice command' button "mute tv" and the TV shuts up. Start recording something on my TiVo from my laptop or again from my phone "TV, record this".

For a man who spends his days in the world of txt's, that's well spotted...  ;)

...but clearly I need to spend some time in an ESOL class!


"The next big move in this space will be intergration between junk [(devices)] rather than more [significant development of ] display [equipment] flap."

Make a bit more sense this time?
