Deepak Kumar Dubey, Research scholar at the Nano Organic Photonics Devices Lab, Dept. of Material Science & Engineering at the National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan presents their Blue hazardous free Candle light-style organic light emitting diode based lamp. Increasing studies report that blue light to possess a potential hazard to the retina of human eyes, secretion of melatonin and artworks. To devise a human and artwork-friendly light source and to also trigger a "Lighting Renaissance", they demonstrate here how to enable a quality, blue-hazard free general lighting source on basis of low color-temperature organic light emitting diodes. This blue-hazard free candlelight OLED desk lamp (2,000K) is made by the collaborative effort of National Tsing Hua University and WiseChip Semiconductor Inc. It is presumably 20 times safer in terms of retinal protection and 10 times better for melatonin generation as compared with the 5000K blue light-enriched white light. It is friendly to human eyes, physiologies, artifacts, ecosystems, the environment, and night skies, besides being free from UV, flickering and glare etc.
Floating image displays can provide a tactile response in the form temperature transmission. For example an image of a fire can make you feel heat while an image of a snowflake provides a cold feeling. Infinity mirror air provides project light source vertically and horizontally using a small strip of light. Yamamoto university also has technology for projecting 3D objects into its hologram.

LLvision smartglasses are smart glasses that use OLED display technology and feature a 20 degree field of view. Smartglasses are often used for enhanced or augmented reality such as games of information of nearby businesses. Filmed at the I-Zone of the SID Display Week.
Lincoln Technology has the brightest display in the world at 7000 nits. 7000 nits is possible, but isn't always necessary. Brighter displays are better for digital signage, general visibility and outdoor usage. Filmed at the SID Display Week.
Touchscreen film technology from Synaptics and Guardian industries enables more transparent and responsive displays. Using a continuous silver film makes the glass of the display more visible and makes it easier to see objects. One potential application is vending machines. Filmed at the SID Display Week.
