There has been an interesting breakthrough in pixel density


#1

This article is talking about this paper, and I’m super-pumped about what this team of scientists pulled off:

Essentially more pixels operating with less power consumption per pixel; hype!


#2

just means when the price goes up, it’s gonna be longer before I get vr… but still awesome!


#3

I don’t think we’ll see a big (if any) jump in cost. I’m sure it’ll be a bit before they have it commercial-ready, and it’ll probably cost comparably to current systems (if not cheaper) by then.


#4

Started reading and thought “I doubt this has much effective application in consumer monitors…”

Then I kept reading… “VR? Oh snap!”


#5

When these hit the market they will be exensive as hell for a year or so and then drop down to normal prices. Gotta pay the new shiny tax.


#6

Again, I highly doubt it; it’s the same way we see technological leaps in other hardware and it’s not crazy-expensive on release compared to what the previous generation cost when it first came out (TV’s, cell phones, GPU’s, etc.).


#7

Maybe, maybe not. We’ll see when they hit the market, new tech in things like TV’s usually gets a premium price for a little while.


#8

Yes and no; like I said, it’s generally the same “premium price” that the preceding iteration on the tech had, though, so it’s not like it’s going to be much (if any) more expensive than the latest-and-greatest was when the last generation of tech dropped.
