Japanese Technology from the Future Friday! - AkihabaraNews.com

This week we're talking about Japan's role in the iPhone 6's alleged and guessed at and in all ways speculated upon manufacturing delays due to display assembly issues, and then we talk about gambling, booze, and internet addiction and how that last one might be really kinda highly subjective and we're not buying all the Ministry of Health is selling!

LG announced that they are going to display the world's first 21:9 curved 34-inch IPS ultrawide monitor "34UC97" at IFA 2014 that will held from September 5 through September 10 in Berlin, Germany.

In addition to the curved "34UC97", LG is planning to display a digital cinema 4K monitor (31MU97) and a gaming monitor (24GM77).

LG announced that they are going to start selling 23.8 inch full HD sleek display 24MP76HM-S for ¥27,800 in late January in Japan.

Since LG adopted the virtually frameless New CINEMA SCREEN design, the width of the frame part of the display is only 5.6mm, which is about half the width in its previous model.

It is 23.8 inch (1920x1080) AH-IPS panel, 1,000:1 contrast (maximum 1 million:1), 250cd/m2 luminance. It has 2 HDMI, a D-Sub, a 3.5mm analogue stereo input, a stereo minijack, and 5W+5W speaker.

Sharp just announced that they are going to release a 70v and 60v type touch display called BIG PAD. 70v type models (PN-L703A, PN-L703B) will be out on March 10 and 60v type models (PN-L603A, PN-L603B) will out on April 10.

A maximum 4 people can write on the display simultaneously, and the A series (PN-L703A, PN-L603A) has the "Whiteboard" functionality that allows you to write on the display with a pen right away after being powered on.

 

At the University of Tokyo, the Hirose-Tanikawa Lab is doing R&D on a system that virtually creates and affects people's emotional states.

 

SEL have developed a range of flexible OLED displays and high PPI LCD panels which use CAAC oxide semiconductors.

"CAAC stands for C-Axis Aligned Crystal. In this material's structure, the crystals are aligned in the c-axis direction. Because CAAC itself is crystalline instead of amorphous, it has much higher reliability. Until now, with oxide semiconductors, reliability was generally thought to be a problem, but using this material solves that problem."
