The 22nd annual Flat Information Displays conference in San Francisco this week showcased the latest advancements in LCD, plasma and projection technology. Among those on hand was video display maker eMagin, which has created microdisplays smaller than a quarter to power stereovision goggles for viewing movies, games and other content in 3D. The .59-inch screen is based on Organic Light Emitting Diode, or OLED, technology, which is made of carbon-based molecules. The screen adapts to 800 by 600 full color pixels and is capable of displaying 16.7 million colors.
