What is a curved display?
A curved display is a revolutionary model in display technology that offers three-dimensional (3-D) screens instead of two-dimensional (2-D) screens. It can significantly change the way we think and use a range of interfaces from televisions and laptops to tablets and mobile devices.
Curved display research goes back to the 1970s. By the early years of the new millennium, organizations were already exploring the use of organic user interfaces (OUI), which featured pliable screens where manipulating three-dimensional physical objects required system controls.
Curved screen light emitting diode (LED) displays are finding their way to end users who will gradually see greater flexibility than with today's standard flat glass or plastic display, which typically has a gesture touchscreen interface. Other related technologies include wearable computer products or implants.
The Google Glass interface is a pioneer in non-flat design that will gradually have less of a 3D character in IT products in the future.
