World's Thinnest Display uses a Soap Bubble and Ultrasound
Could this new innovation in display technology be the road to greener displays? At first look, while this type of display only uses the surface of the soap film as a display, using less material than a traditional display, it's yet to be seen if the ultrasound and other equipment needed to fully deploy the display unit are less resource-intensive and feasible in 'real-world' applications. And of course, the question of whether or not it makes sense to have a display which can accidentally be 'popped' is another aspect to be dealt with (considering how hard we are on our other devices, it's difficult to see how these soap bubble screens would be a realistic option - at least at the moment).
