Forget 3D, here comes the QD TV
OK. Stupid headline from the Telegraph since Quantum Dots have nothing to do with 2D vs. 3D, but the content is a bit more interesting. Sounds like the integration of QD technology will convincingly push LCD display quality past Plasma for the last group of hold outs clinging to their Pioneer Elites and poo-pooing your multi-zone backlighting (that would be me 🙂 They are claiming products will be on the shelves by the end of next year, but a few more years before you can buy QD wallpaper.
The scientists hope the first quantum dot televisions – like current flat-screen TVs, but with improved colour and thinner displays – will be available in shops by the end of next year. A flexible version is expected to take at least three years to reach the market.
While researching, I also stumbled across this cool site with a number of QD pictures.
