From the days of hellish hertz rates through innovative flat panel monitors to promising new holographic technologies, display manufacturers have come a long way in crafting immersive ‘windows’ into our virtual worlds; opening up new horizons in the world of 3D.
As inseparable as photorealism has become from 3D visualization, so too does our need for immersion rise when it comes to display technologies. Expectations towards new solutions are higher than ever and don’t seem to tone down, especially considering the widespread use of high-end motion-captured virtual textures, interactive sales solutions and hardware enhancements that facilitate the creation and review of 3D content.
By now, most of us have become somewhat addicted to a multitude of screens. Whether it’s our television, tablet, gaming console or smartwatch; there seems to be an ever-growing overlap between virtual interfaces and our daily lives. Due to this inevitable fusion between the experience economy and new immersive visual technologies; marketers also seek out new ways to engage with consumers online and at the point of sale.
In the same way, up-and-coming hardware and software technologies become intertwined; opening up new horizons for content developers and becoming essential tools in the hands of professionals dealing with complex light and environmental simulations, and enthusiasts who are on the lookout for sharper visual solutions for their living rooms.
With so many technologies emerging – and old platforms redefining themselves – it’s difficult to see what platform or devices really have the potential to become popular amongst everyday users. Whether it’s touch-sensitive displays, 4K screens with VR capabilities, curved and bendable screens, augmented reality contact lenses or monitors that get so wide that they might surround us one day, these technologies can help us explore a new world of immersion and redefine our sense of spatial interaction in the virtual space.
Here’s our collection of exciting new solutions that are capable of reshaping display technologies; providing awe-inspiring experiences in the near future.
You’ve probably heard of displays getting thinner and more flexible, but there’s another quality to screens where they’ve shown considerable development in recent years and it’s their transparency; leaving us with new ideas for interior design, POS displays and many other fields.
