Shatterproof screens on the way
One of the biggest bugbears for people is a display screen that cracks or even shatters when they drop their mobile device. LG Electronics appears to have solved this problem, as it has been working on creating shatterproof versions of the display.
Moreover, it seems that the Asian outfit is ready to pour money into the building of a new production plant with the sole objective of making flexible and unbreakable displays for its future smartphones. The investment is thought to be in the region of $176 million.
This is an interesting development, and one to watch.
In other news, some time ago it was reported that Google was developing some newfangled spectacles or glasses. While this news was not widely reported or was perhaps forgotten about, it seems that the reality is getting closer.
In fact, the reality is closer than many would have thought, as photos were posted online. One of these series of photographs shows one reporter whirling his son around while a picture was taken via the glasses.
It is well known that taking still pictures of a moving target does not always have a happy outcome; the resulting photograph is generally blurred unless you are an excellent photographer. However, the quality of the ‘glasses’ pictures is very good.
Some experts think that Google’s ‘glasses’ could be on sale as early as the end of this year, although Google itself has denied that this is likely to happen.
