우리 lab director가 최근에 이런것들을 다 정리해서 보내줘서 알았다. ^^
As of 10:00 am on Monday, February 23, 31 stories on HP and ASU’s flexible display announcement have run in print and online sources, including The Economist, InformationWeek, The Register, EETimes, Ars Technica, PC Magazine, WIRED, Engadget.com, The New York Times, The Phoenix Business Journal, Laser Focus World and CNET. In addition to print and online sources, a piece ran on KETV News (ABC)—Omaha, NE and on KNXV-TV (ABC) – Phoenix.
In all, the flexible display news was positive. Main threads in coverage included possible future applications of the technology, the low price and reduced power consumption.
“Key characteristics of flexible displays include the ability to view the screens in a variety of lighting conditions, outside or at an angle, said Carl Taussig, director of the information surfaces at HP Labs, the research arm of computer seller HP.” – Andrew Johnson, The Arizona Republic
“Imagine being able to fold your laptop and put it in your pocket! It may seem impossible, but this new technology is not far off thanks to Hewlett Packard and Arizona State University, who have teamed up to create flexible computer displays…The Army would be able to quickly send valuable information to soldiers in the field. For instance: enemy positions, surroundings, maps and information about buildings soldiers may be planning to enter.” – KNXV-TV, Phoenix
“This promises to become a cost-effective mass-production method which Hewlett-Packard will license to other producers, says Prith Banerjee, the company’s research director. Once that happens, he hopes, flexible screens could be used in all sorts of devices.” – Phillip Spears, The Economist
“Market researcher iSuppli expects flexible electronic displays to eventually become an important technology in the production of electronic readers and other mobile devices. The market for such displays is expected to soar to $2.8 billion in 2013 from $80 million in 2007, according to iSuppli numbers provided by HP and ASU.” – Antone Gonsalves, InformationWeek
“Flexible displays could be pulled out from a PDA-like device to provide a viewing area larger than the device itself. They could also be used as a form of paper, signage, or as displays stretched between supports for a meeting and then rolled away and packed up.” – Chris Mellor, The Register
“Oh, and as a bonus, H-P says the material is ‘unbreakable.’ I’ll take seven, please.” – Victor Godinez, The Dallas Morning News
“The ‘unbreakable’ display will use 90 percent few materials by volume than traditional displays, according to HP. It also gets extra green points for consuming less power than standard displays.” – Brian Heater, PC Magazine
“Potential uses for the new flexible displays, according to HP and the FDC, are in electronic paper and future electronic devices that could use the extra battery life, such as smartphones and notebook computers.” – Jose Vilches, TechSpot.com
“Applications such as electronic paper, digital signage, notebook computers, and smart phones will benefit from the cost effective and flexible screen. The technology is predicted to gain a popular grow from $80 million in 2007 to $2.8 billion by 2013.” – Daniel Lim, Slashgear.com
“In this case, the news is the medium. Hewlett-Packard and Arizona State University, which is home to the Flexible Display Center, announced on Monday that they have come up with a prototype computer display that is made of plastic, but is ‘paper-like.’” – Matt Richtel, The New York Times
“Although it uses an active matrix and can show moving content, it also uses Vizplex’s E Ink technology borrowed from e-books to render an image stable even when the display’s power is shut off, making it ideal for reading.” – Electronista.com
