Future Advancements in Display Technology
Technological advancements have come a long way over the past few decades and it seems that they’re not showing any signs of ever slowing down. With new innovations and discoveries being made every single day, it makes sense that a lot of tech companies are jumping on the bandwagon of wanting to be the first agencies in their field to develop the latest inventions. When it comes to elaborate industrial monitors, however, there’s no shortage of new features that can help improve user experiences. Keep reading to learn all about these features.
Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) Display
This type of display screen is able to organically emit light when it makes contact with an electric current. It uses a diode to direct the light or electric current in a singular forward direction depending on its placement. The advantage of the OLED displays is that they have the capacity to function optimally in all lighting conditions from extremely bright to extremely dark without causing any visual disruptions. It’s predicted that they could even replace standard LED and LCD displays in the near future if they haven’t already begun to take over the market.
Flexible displays are also already on the horizon. Many big-name technological companies are already working on developing their own brand of flexible or bendable tablets, laptops, smartphones, and other technological devices that are portable and can fit in the smallest of spaces. By this time next year, you might be able to fold up your tablet and fit it in your back pocket! Aside from everyday practical use, these displays will also be useful in worldwide military and marines operations, across numerous medical fields, as well as the food and gaming industries in various capacities.
Tactile or Haptic Touchscreens
Tactile touchscreen displays, also known as haptic touchscreens, give immediate feedback at various touch points. While this technology isn’t necessarily new and has been around for several decades, the formatting of it has changed a lot over the years. Nowadays, tactile touchscreens come equipped with multi-touch functions and much faster response times that reduce the rate of lagging and improve data entry functionality. Multiple people can use these devices simultaneously without causing them to malfunction.
Outdoor 3D Screens
Considering the fact that drive-in movies have seen a significant uptick in popularity over the past few years, not to mention the fact that lots of people attend concerts with jumbo screens, it’s not surprising that outdoor 3D screens are also gaining a lot of momentum. While this idea is still quite a ways off in terms of production, it doesn’t mean that some tech companies haven’t already commended the design and development phase. What this means for this type of technology is that these companies are in the midst of developing 3D screens for outdoor use that can operate without the use of 3D glasses.
Also in the same stream as outdoor 3D screens, holographic display technology is making a lot of headway and has already been used by several concert venues across North America to essentially allow fans the opportunity to see their favourite deceased performers live in concert posthumously. The idea might sound a little morbid at first, but it’s also a nice way to bring fans closer together to their beloved artists, especially if they never got the chance while the person was alive.
