This 8K monitor has 3D tech that can be viewed from all angles

BOE showcased an interesting new 110-inch 8K display, which includes a new 3D technology that allows you the ability to view the monitor from all angles without the need for special glasses.

The Chinese brand revealed the display at the annual European conference ISE 2023 as a part of its lineup of enterprise displays, according to (via Wccftech). It features a QD (Quantum Dot) Mini LED backlighting, which is already a potential monitor trend for 2023.

Samsung recently introduced the Odyssey Neo G9 gaming monitor with a 43-inch Quantum Mini-LED panel for its ability to produce deep blacks with minimal glare similar to OLED panels. A fix of lens array technology and the QD Mini LED backlighting is what helps bring the 3D effects in the display to life.

The BOE display also supports a 120Hz refresh rate and a 3D viewing distance of around five feet, which the brand aims to expand. With the enterprise focus, the display is made for viewing by multiple people at once. Specific use cases could be advertising or large-scale meetings.

BOE had several displays showcased at the conference, including the 162-inch P0.9 glass-based active Mini LED. The monitor features a proprietary full-gray-scale Gamma curve technology that allows for clear images on the darkest of screens. The display supports a peak brightness of 1000 nits, as well as a high contrast ratio and a low flicker rate.

Another 8K display is BOE’s 65-inch Mini-LED display. The monitor features an ultra-thin glass-back design and 3024 Micro-LED local dimming zones, as well as support for outdoor or indoor wall mounting. It can handle high temperatures, making it good for enterprise customers, particularly those that might need displays for outdoor events or advertising.

BOE also showcased an 86-inch 4K whiteboard display, which features capacitive and interactive touch capabilities. The display whiteboard supports a 178-degree wide viewing angle and a 20-point touch.

Forget VR. Airglass made me actually enjoy video calls

Video calls have become a staple of the modern office, and they're not going anywhere anytime soon. Companies like Meta want you to think mixed reality or virtual reality might make these meetings easier to stomach, but we all know those technologies don't quite feel ready yet.

But the startup Mobeus has a different idea about how to improve video meetings -- and it doesn't involve any more hardware than the laptop you already own. I spoke with Mobeus' Head of Marketing and Chief Evangelist Alan Lepofsky about Airglass while testing out this new video conferencing software myself.

Apple’s Reality Pro mixed-reality headset is probably just a few months from launching, but we’re still seeing the company’s top-secret ideas seeping out into the wild. The latest leak shows one way you might be able to control things in Apple’s metaverse -- and it’s a pretty unusual concept.

According to a recently granted patent (number 2023/0042447 A1), Apple is exploring the idea of using an Apple Pencil as a sort of virtual reality (VR) controller. The idea is that your hand holding the Apple Pencil could be displayed in the mixed-reality world that you see through the headset, overlaying it onto augmented reality (AR) elements.
