Benefits of New Technology Displays
DrQuine   7/5/2014 12:30:55 PM
It sounds like another benefit of this technology is that the pixels can be larger which would be a benefit for billboards or large screen displays in public venues. The speed of reaction and the ability to make a uniform magnetic field so that the pattern within the pixel is consistent would seem to be issues requiring resolution.

response time and true black image
wilber_xbox   6/30/2014 2:45:00 PM
Will these molecules provide better response time to magnetic field as in traditional LCD's the motion pictures are not that sharp. Also traditonal LCD do not have pure black images. But the new crystals maybe will be able to response to EMF or light too that will open up possible applications in smart devices where light detectors can be buildin the displays.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
