In this edition of Mobile Monday, we are checking out the latest technological innovations aimed to make VR more immersive, screens more flexible, and mobile viewing more enjoyable.
Haptic Meets VR
To enhance the immersion of Virtual Reality devices, Tesla Studios is currently kickstarting a Teslasuit that will leverage haptic feedback technology. In essence, VR players will wear a suit that provides full-body sensations to match whatever is displaying in the headset.
Roll-Up OLED Screen Demonstrated at CES
Albeit teased for years, LG finally unveiled a working demonstration of their flexible OLED panel at CES this year. While an earlier version of the plastic-based screen is found in a few mobile devices already, the new prototype does not require any rigid protection or overlays. While this technology could have a massive impact on mobile devices, one can’t help but yearn for a slap bracelet that plays videos.
Smart Mobile Theaters
If haptic VR and flexible displays weren’t enough for our video consumption needs, Royole recently demonstrated their new foldable Smart Mobile Theater system. The device consists of noise-cancelling headphones and an adjustable display that lets you watch even with your glasses off.
