  • LED display
    An LED display is a flat panel display, which uses an array of light-emitting diodes as pixels for a video display.
  • Nixie tube
    A Nixie tube, or cold cathode display, is an electronic device for displaying numerals or other information using glow discharge.
  • Vacuum fluorescent display
    A vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) is a display device used commonly on consumer-electronics equipment such as video cassette recorders, car radios, and microwave ovens.
  • Xerography
    Xerography or electrophotography is a dry photocopying technique.
  • PlayStation VR
    PlayStation VR, known by the codename Project Morpheus during development, is a virtual reality head-mounted display developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, which launched on October 13, 2016.
  • Cathode ray tube
    The cathode ray tube (CRT) is a vacuum tube that contains one or more electron guns and a phosphorescent screen, and is used to display images.
  • Electroluminescence
    Electroluminescence (EL) is an optical phenomenon and electrical phenomenon in which a material emits light in response to the passage of an electric current or to a strong electric field.
  • Liquid-crystal display
    A liquid-crystal display (LCD) is a flat-panel display or other electronic visual display that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals.
  • OLED
    An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound that emits light in response to an electric current.
  • Oscilloscope
    An oscilloscope, previously called an oscillograph, and informally known as a scope, CRO (for cathode-ray oscilloscope), or DSO (for the more modern digital storage oscilloscope), is a type of electronic test instrument that allows observation of constantly varying signal voltages, usually as a two-dimensional plot of one or more signals as a function of time.
  • Plasma display
    A plasma display panel (PDP) is a type of flat panel display common to large TV displays 30 inches (76 cm) or larger.
  • Color television
    Color television is a television transmission technology that includes information on the color of the picture, so the video image can be displayed in color on the television set.
  • Flight instruments
    Flight instruments are the instruments in the cockpit of an aircraft that provide the pilot with information about the flight situation of that aircraft, such as altitude, airspeed and direction.
  • Oculus Rift
    The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset developed and manufactured by Oculus VR, released on March 28, 2016.
  • Virtual retinal display
    A virtual retinal display (VRD), also known as a retinal scan display (RSD) or retinal projector (RP), is a display technology that draws a raster display (like a television) directly onto the retina of the eye.
  • Glasstron
    The Sony Glasstron was a family of portable head-mounted displays, first released in 1996 with the model PLM-50.
  • Interactive whiteboard
    An interactive whiteboard (IWB) is a large interactive display that connects to a computer.
  • Refreshable braille display
    A refreshable braille display or braille terminal is an electro-mechanical device for displaying braille characters, usually by means of round-tipped pins raised through holes in a flat surface.
  • Retina Display
    Retina Display (marketed by Apple with a lowercase 'D' as Retina display) is a brand name used by Apple for screens that have a higher pixel density than their previous models.
  • Electronic visual display
    An electronic visual display, informally a screen, is a display device for presentation of images, text, or video transmitted electronically, without producing a permanent record.
  • Google Contact Lens
    Google Contact Lens is a smart contact lens project announced by Google on 16 January 2014.
  • Phosphorescent organic light-emitting diode
    Phosphorescent organic light-emitting diodes (PHOLED) are a type of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) that use the principle of phosphorescence to obtain higher internal efficiencies than fluorescent OLEDs.
  • LED art
    In early 2007, there was a bomb scare in Boston, Massachusetts in the United States caused by a guerrilla marketing campaign.
  • Thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display
    A thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display (TFT LCD) is a variant of a liquid-crystal display (LCD) that uses thin-film transistor (TFT) technology to improve image qualities such as addressability and contrast.
  • Sonification
    Sonification is the use of non-speech audio to convey information or perceptualize data.
  • Broadcast reference monitor
    A video monitor also called a broadcast monitor, broadcast video monitor, broadcast reference monitor or just reference monitor, is a display device similar to a television set, used to monitor the output of a video-generating device, such as playout from a video server, IRD, video camera, VCR, or DVD player.
  • Flexible organic light-emitting diode
    A flexible organic light emitting diode (FOLED) is a type of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) incorporating a flexible plastic substrate on which the electroluminescent organic semiconductor is deposited.
  • Interpupillary distance
    Interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the center of the pupils of the two eyes.
  • Fog display
    A fog display, fog screen, vapor screen or vapor display is a system that uses haze machines or water vapor to create a semi-transparent wall, or "curtain" of suspended particles which trapped in a thin sheet (Laminar Flow) of air and are illuminated by a projector, in order to produce a display whose images seem to float in mid air.
  • Epiphany Eyewear
    Epiphany Eyewear are computer enabled video recording eye glasses developed by Vergence Labs.
  • Flexible display
    A flexible display is an electronic visual display which is flexible in nature; differentiable from the more prevalent traditional flat screen displays used in most electronics devices.
