    Today we have HDTV, plasma, LCD, DVI, DLP and 16:9 sets. What could be next for TV technology? Halographic screens as found in "Star Wars"?

    Naah, those Star Wars holograms are awfully blurry and low-res. Heck, they can't even get good reception half the time. [​IMG] I'm waiting on the holodeck, Star Trek TNG style! [​IMG]

    Now this is just something That I heard But you never know.

    About a year ago someone told me that there are plans in the works for a TV that USES some sort of mesh screen instead of Light bulbs in a plasma. The mesh is made up of a light sensitive material that will be thinner and lighter than any plasma Available today. He also told me that along with RGB it will also USE CMYK for a greater color Spectrum capable of Billions of Colors.


    Hey it sounds pretty Cool


    I just want to start Humming The Jetson's Theme right now.

    Hugh,

    Yeah, great idea. Roll it in a cylinder and put your head inside. Complete surround vision. Would be awesome.

    This company is printing RGB ink patterns onto big sheets of plastic that become huge hi-res monitors when wired to video signals. The process is called electroluminesence and they have it nailed! 1st generation product is avilable for commercial applications right now, consumer roll up 10 ft. screens any day now. cdtltd.co.uk

    I am quite surprised that British researchers are able to create a roll-up TV. I thought such an idea would originate among the Japanese. It is refreshing to see consumer electronics innovations outside Japan.

    I imagine this is the technology that inspired the cereal box in Minority Report. After the Tom Cruise character pours a bowl, the cartoon characters on the box start bouncing around and making a bunch of noise.
