whither 3D Tv?

In all this talk of the new trends and predictions  in displays, the much touted about  the 3D displays seem to have vanished from the discussion forums.

Has that technology reached a dead end?

You are absolutely right. Not much talk on 3D. But in the case of 3DTV, the issue is more of the usability than anything else.

The money is poured into UDTV, OLED, and definitely the biggest target for everyone is "mobile."

I donot think that technology has reached a dead end but its premature market. Mostly there is little content available for 3D TV. Unless there are thousand of movies, series, commericals and general content available i do not see 3D going anywhere. Also, the consumer hardware that can capture 3D videos and pics should be first thing to develop to increase the 3D content.

wearable devices vs car infotainment

Between wearable devices and car infortainment, the latter has better chance to boost display market growth. Wearables will have smaller display and will be full of high end mems sensors and IC devices. However the car infortainment will need high end display devices and touchscreens for entainment purpose. Also the flexible displays can find better market in automobiles than anywhere else.

@wilber_xbox, totally agree. If the Touch Taiwan conference were any indication, it looks like carmakers are actually placing a lot of orders for their various screens!

oh yes, and one more thing. A new trend is making the "touch screen" in a car as close as to that of media tablets. You don't want the car display to be something as primitive as "push here button" type of touch screen, but rather much more fluid as that of tablets.  

It's obvious, but it means a boon to touch screen companies!

In-Cell vs. On-Cell technologies

The In-Cell vs. On-cell technology seems to be heating up. Although those who supply to Apple pretty much seem to believe that "in-cell" is the only way to go.

Touch screen notebooks will hit the wall?

Touch screen vendors did enjoy the surge for the touch screen demands from notebook computer guys in the second half of last year. 

I am curious to find out if it is indeed hitting the wall this year...what do you think?

Well, I agree with JP Pang telling of 'laws of physics":

Using a somewhat vertical touchscreen do not need that much time to turn painful.

I assume neither do people not need time to understand it.
