Calm down… Calm down! Its time for Geek Tech Live!

HAST a la Video from Japan!

OrtusTech has unveiled a new display that blows away the retinia display specs on the Iphone 4. Its called HAST (Hyper Amorphous Silicon TFT) and was realized through the application of various original ORTUS TECHNOLOGY technologies: This display isn’t attached to a phone but can be applied to any devices or applications where you want to see things that are so sharp and clear it might cut your eyeballs.  The Specs of the display are crazy! at 4.8 inches wide it packs a 1,920×1,080 resolution and a pixel density of 458ppi. Its ultra high performance and is 100+ ppi denser than the Iphone REtina display.  So I have a question though. It was said by Apple that the Retina display has so many pixels that any more could not be percieved by the average human eye. so, will the HAST display even look any better or are we just going to have to believe that it is better? We will just have to wait and see.

Wi-fi Direct and the unified theory of connectivity. is going to set the world ablaze.Well, OK maybe not ablaze but they are going to connect every wi-fi device to every other Wi-fi device using Wi-fi direct.  Here is a Vimeo Video that explains how this will all work.

This technology will basically let anything that has a Wi-fi connection to be able to communicate. So you can send Images to your Ipad from a Wi-fi enabled camera, or long range personal gaming. Lots of possibilities exist and all of them could be the end of blue tooth as the connectivity of choice.

Chilean Miners watched movies on Samsung Galaxy Beam Phone.

To Quote Samsung from the

While Chilean Mine workers were trapped in a copper-gold mine, they were sent Samsung’s Galaxy Beam phones for entertainment purposes. Different items were sent through a hole, which also included the projector phone.

The Galaxy Beam was loaded with a “message of encouragement” from Chile’s mining minister as well as movies and recording of a friendly football match between Chile and Ukraine.

We’re proud that our technology could play a part in this mining miracle.

So, not only were the miners on an exercise regimen they also got at least a small comfort of visual entertainment while they were waiting to be saved. Good on you Samsung for what you did. That was awesome.
