AOC Rolls Out Multitouch Gesture Control 21.5″ Display

AOC has just introduced a new multitouch LCD display, dubbed the Touchmate e2239Fwt. The 21.5″ multitouch LCD display is ideal for software applications that require gesture control. The touch screen features 1920 x 1080 pixel Full HD resolution and an amazing 20 million to 1 dynamic contrast ratio.

If you’re getting this monitor for your PC gaming, you’ll be happy to hear that it has just a 5ms response time and is LED backlit. A lower response time of course minimizes the effects of ghosting (motion blur of moving images).

Vivitek Qumi HD LED Pocket Projector, Only $500

Vivitek has announced that it will be shipping its gorgeous looking Qumi HD and 3D pocket projectors. The projectors were originally set to ship last month but never went through. You can buy this awesome projector now for just $499, a steal when it comes to projectors.

The Qumi will weigh just 1.4 pounds and its the first 3D ready pocket projector. The machine uses Texas Instruments DLP Link technology, and has touch sensitive buttons with a very sleek design. The device ships in either black or white and has a resolution of 1280 x 800, giving it 720p capability.

Toshiba’s REGZA 19P2 W/ Internal Battery

Toshiba has just released a new TV in Japan called the REGZA 19P2 TV with internal battery in Japan this week. The TV starts at 50,000 Yen (About $620 USD) and carries a 19″ screen measuring out to 1366 x 768 pixels.

The LCD TV’s core feature is its removable internal battery that is able to deliver 5 hours of continuous play time and comes with a 1Seg Digital TV Tuner allowing consumers to freely move the television from room to room, rather than buying a separate TV set for each room.

What To Look For When Buying An HDTV

When you’re browsing online for the right HDTV, it can sometimes be hard to know exactly what you’re getting into. Unlike shopping through regular ‘bricks and mortar’ stores such as Best Buy or Target, shopping online requires a deep understanding of the specs since you cannot see the picture quality directly on the site, although you may be able to YouTube a review.

When you’re browsing through TVs, try to get one that has a 120Hz refresh rate, as these offer much better picture than 60Hz, and is often work the extra dollar spent. 240Hz screens are usually used for 3D picture, and split the 240Hz into two 120Hz (one for each eye). Unless you plan on doing some 3D watching, I suggest sticking with the 120Hz screens.

Sony Introduces New 3D Projector

Sony has recently shown us a new projector, the VPL-HW30ES 3D Projector (pictured top), that includes Sony’s latest lamp technology, a dynamic lamp control system, that has been designed to provide home movie fans with an “unrivaled 3D cinematic experience.”

The new 3D projector utilizes Sony’s proprietary High Frame Rate SXRD Panel, rocking a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and mastering a 70,000:1 contrast ratio, providing a brightness rating of 1,300lm.

Dimenco Announces 52″ Lenticular TV

Ex-Philips engineers have started a company called Dimenco with the prime goal of developing glasses-free TV. Rather than calling them Googlers (since they didn’t work at Google), you have my permission to call them Philips-ers (although that doesn’t roll off the tongue very well.) The four engineers started the company with the idea that they would have the first commercial product available by year 2013.

Dimenco has today announced that it will be unleashing a 52″ lenticular (produces illusion of depth) TV LCD, offering full 1080p visuals via glasses-free 3D.

Toshiba Beats Apple’s Retina Display, By Miles

Okay, so Apple Shmapple, you’ve heard all the talks about iPhone’s technology and why you should get it. One of the iPhone’s coolest features, at least in my opinion, is its retina display. Although I am a bit of a pixel fanatic, it’s time to look our eyes away from Apple and towards technology of the future. Samsung introduced a highly dense pixel resolution just last week, and Toshiba is keeping up the paces.

Toshiba has just come forth with a new four inch display that will be used in smartphones. The 4-inch screen will feature a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, allowing it to display HD video in 720p.

Yale Offers High Resolution Photos For Free

The academic institution will be making the high res photos from its cultural collections and have already begun uploading 250,000 images with many more to come. People can enjoy gorgeous photos from hieroglyphic inscriptions, to Mozart, to a painting by William Blake.

HTC Puccini: Full Spec Leak

We mentioned the HTC Puccini last week, as a possible HTC tablet. Well it looks like that rumor had some substance as we have just got wind of a full debriefing of what this tablet has to offer. It will definitely be a ten inch tablet and carry a speedy Gonzalez 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 dual core processor, running the infamous Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

HP Announces Ultra-Thin LCD + Low Cost Data Plans

Hewlett-Packard is releasing an ultra-thin display. If you thought Apple was the leader in this market, think again! The 21.5″ Elite L2201x has a power supply that is located outside the device, allowing for the screen to be as thin as 0.4 inches thick. The display offers a beautiful metal finish to its stand with glossy black borders around the screen itself. It only has one port which is a DisplayPort but we are hoping this will be enough for the majority of users.
