Smart Films Facilitate Human-Machine Interaction

Imagine this: A smooth touchscreen display placed on top of a thin silicone polymer film suddenly generates the feeling of a tiny raised button under the user's finger. Or how about the idea of wearing that same polymer film like a second skin? If used to line an industrial glove, the film can provide valuable feedback by gesture recognition and by sending tactile signals, such as pulses or vibrations, to the wearer.

Highly Efficient Large-Area Perovskite For Next Generation Displays

Highly Efficient Large-Area Perovskite For Next Generation Displays

Metal halide perovskites have very narrow spectral emission, excellent color purity, low material cost, and wide and easy color-tunability. Based on these advantages, perovskites are considered as a promising high color purity light emitter which can replace the conventional organic and inorganic quantum dot light emitters in displays and solid-state lighting technologies.

E Ink Display Technology First to Receive Dark Sky Certification

E Ink has received the Dark Sky Certification from the International Dark Sky Association. E Ink is the first display technology to be certified through the IDA. As a reflective technology, E Ink displays do not emit any light, and rely on the ambient lighting around them to be viewed. For night viewing, a simple, small LED strip can illuminate the display without the need for significant wasteful stray light that disrupts the neighborhood or the environment.
