Displays today are most flat, but the future will hold stretchable, bendable, foldable displays that can unfurl like a sail, according to researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) who recently showed two stretchable organic light emitting diode (OLED) prototypes--a lighting panel and a small display: R.

Researcher wearing purple gloves demonstrates how an OLED lighting panel can be bent while still working undamaged.
Cognitive computers—cognizers—aim to instill human-like intelligence into our smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices using microchips that emulate the human brain. Dubbed the “Future of Computing” by the NYTimes, one of the “Best Innovation Moments of 2011” by the Washington Post and one of “10 World Changing Ideas” in a Scientific American cover story “A Computer Chip that Thinks” this book reveals how neuroscience and computer science are merging in a new era of intelligent machines light-years beyond Apple's Siri, IBM's Watson.
Next-generation electronics and technology news stories published non-stop for 20+ years, R. Colin Johnson's unique perspective has prompted coverage of his articles in a diverse range of major media outlets--from the ultra-liberal National Public Radio (NPR) to the ultra-conservative Rush Limbaugh Show.
