It's Mud Season Again


It’s mud season here in New England — that time of year when everything merges into an amorphous mess. The gray sky merges with a gray landscape made into slop by continual rains and dirty gray melting snow. It’s hard to tell where one thing ends and another begins. Eventually the sun comes out and dries everything, the sky becomes distinct from the horizon, plants bloom from the firming ground, and order is restored. What better time for Amazon and Salesforce to announce another partnership?

Nanopixel displays with 150 times higher resolution – and they’re flexible, too

Oxford University's ITO/GST phase-change material nanopixel display
Researchers at Oxford University in England have created nanopixels that measure just 300-by-300 nanometers. Compare this to a modern smartphone with a 400 ppi display, where each pixel is about 150 times larger (about 50 microns across). Furthermore, Oxford’s prototype nanopixel displays are both low-power and thin and flexible. Ultimately, these nanopixels could eventually be used in extremely high-resolution displays with billions of pixels — though it might be rather hard to find a graphics card that can drive a 198000×120000 display, of course.
