Tech News: Watch Out for Flexible Displays

Philips Fluid Concept DesignDo you remember the 2010 Philips Fluid concept design? For those of you who don’t, the idea was a flexible smartphone that wrapped into a bracelet when not in use.

Tech News Part: 140938409254

So many news, so little time!  This year boasted a ton of upgrades (Samsung, Apple. Microsoft, anyone?) and tons of concept designs.  Read more for what’s in store in 2013!

Okay, so this isn’t the REAL iPhone 6, but one can dream, can’t he/she?  Of all designs that I’ve seen, the general consensus is a built-in projector that can be shown on any surface.  Apple will have its keynote on June 10th at the World Wide Developer’s Conference, where it should release some iPhone 6 news!

Does your phone ever get overheated, thereby rendering the phone impossible to use?  Never fear!  The NEC Medias X 06E has recently been produced, and can be cooled by a liquid cooling pipe located behind the display and next to the processor. Do YOU think this liquid-cooling phone is a good idea?

At Society for Information Display’s Display Week 2013, Samsung will be displaying several new gadgets, as well as its new 13.3-inch notebook with 3,200×1,800 (WQXGA+) pixel resolution, which surpasses Apple’s Retina MacBook Pro.  However, with such a small display, what can you really do with such an excellent resolution?

Watch out, Apple fans!  Coming this July, the iPad 5 will be in stores!  With the same resolution of  9.7-inch 2048 x 1536, the iPad 5 will be even lighter, with an improved LED backlighting.  Also in store for Apple this year will be two new iPad Minis, one of which has the Retina display.  Are YOU excited for these new gadgets?  Or are you not an Apple fan? =)

“We promise not to screw it up.” –  Marissa Mayer, in regards to Yahoo’s acquisition of Tumblr, for a whopping $1.1 billion.  With different demographics, can Tumblr survive under Yahoo’s rule?   With a lot of adult content in Tumblr, Yahoo can potentially face several lawsuits in the upcoming years.  What other troubles lie ahead?

Doodle3D is a new drawing tool that brings your sketches to a three-dimensional life.  This tool was created from a Kickstarter campaign, and geared towards an audience with a less serious drawing skills but interested in 3D printing at the same time.  The tool is actually a device itself that can be plugged into your iPad and 3D printer.  COOL or not??

So there it is, the news of  week.  Which devices/upgrades are you most looking forward to seeing come to life??
