• The Instax Share Smartphone Wireless Printer

    Many smartphone users take tons of photos and post them on a few favourite social media sites. However, most of us do not end up doing much else with them. Fujifilm is looking to change this with the Instax Share SP-1, their lightweight, portable printer that can turn your smart device into an instant camera.

    The Instax Share allows you to print of any photograph that is stored on an iOS or Android device to Fujifilm Instax mini film, giving you a credit-card-sized keepsake in seconds. Fujifilm has also added direct printer compatibility for a few of their mirrorless and compact cameras.

    The app that is designed for the printer is one of its most shining features. It offers a variety of filter and template options to touch up or enhance your photographs specifically for printing. Fujifilm’s intelligence filter provides just the right amount of punch and really makes the printed photo pop. The real time template is also an interesting feature that allows you to print the photograph’s location, time and weather conditions right on the picture. One thing that I found very useful was the app’s ability to use photographs from anywhere on your device. I found myself editing and importing ph…

  • Improved TV, smartphone displays in the offing

    OLEDs are already replacing LCDs in high-end consumer devices but a lack of stable and efficient blue materials has made them less competitive in large displays such as televisions.
    Scientists have designed more than 1,000 new blue-light emitting molecules for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) that could dramatically improve displays for televisions, smartphones and tablets. OLED screens use organic molecules that emit light when an electric current is applied. Unlike ubiquitous liquid crystal displays (LCDs), OLED screens do not require a backlight, meaning the display can be as thin and flexible as a sheet of plastic.
    Individual pixels can be switched on or entirely off, dramatically improving the screen’s colour contrast and energy consumption. OLEDs are already replacing LCDs in high-end consumer devic…
