3D color longterm stable liquid crystal displays on way?
October 29, 2014 | 2:25 pm
A research team from the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has announced a technological development that could deliver "optically rewritable 3D liquid crystal displays" that do "not need any power to hold the image after being uploaded." In other words, they are pioneering a technology that can produce a color, 3D equivalent to epaper, with the same durability and low power consumption. The abstract focuses (sic.) mostly on the development of an auto-stereoscopic method of producing goggle-free 3D images involving "holograms or the projection of the two images directly in to the...
Thanks to Michigan researchers, e-readers and tablets are about to become much more colorful

According to a February 6 article that appeared on CIO.com, a website for "chief information officers and other IT leaders," researchers at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor "have found a way to make colors more vivid on an e-reader screen, which could lead to the creation of advanced displays and spawn the development of color e-books." The scientific explanation behind the discovery is certainly complicated, but it has to do with something called structural color, "which is the foundation that makes things like a peacock's tail feathers appear iridescent," according to a separate article about the Michigan research team that...
