[PIC] soap bubbles to create the world’s thinnest screen functionality beyond traditional screens
Understand the technology and technology creators have the ability to develop into what it is very attractive. Screen design on the latest innovation from Tokyo, University of Tokyo researchers Yoichi Ochiai, Alexis Oyama and Keisuke Toyoshima of controversial has developed a thin screen of most of the world, only made of a soap bubble.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed a play on soap bubbles slide technology, but that may well be the existing screens of the most thin and malleable.
Picture projected on the soap bubble is not as easy as it sounds, a typical example is the light can pass through a soap bubble and do not change. In order to address this challenge, researchers place a film of soap bubbles in ultrasonic speaker playback environment. Sonic destroyed the surface tension of bubbles, bubbles create an opaque structure, which can reflect enough light to play the viewer a vivid picture.
In order to avoid bubbles suddenly broken, the experimenter with sugars, glycerol, soaps, surfactants, water and milk mix a glue-like mixture, thus making very strong surface tension and plasticity. You can use your finger through the bubble without puncturing it.
Due to the structure of a soap bubble can be changed according to the frequency of sound waves, the researchers were able to bubble surface structure change into either rough or smooth. For example, projected on the bubble for a picture of the football can be made under the football or smooth surface roughness degree of customization.
Change the speakers to play the acoustic frequency also changes the reflectivity of the screen, in the existing screen, this feature cannot be changed at will. By affecting the intensity of reflection, transparency of the projected picture can also freely change, that’s a little like you see Changing picture in Photoshop software transparency.
Single screen projection of the second feature is the ability to let the researchers projected motion pictures. By adding multiple screens can also be projected a three dimensional picture, this needs to be changed every screen sound wave frequencies to affect the transparency of each bubble. Subsequent to each projector projection alternates pictures on the screen, this will produce a holographic effect.
According to the researchers, the project’s goal is to their impulsive need to recreate the Visual simulation of a variety of materials, including glass and stone. This project was also a test of patent, to implement modern feature not available on this screen. This screen has the ductility and user-defined functions, it is unprecedented relative to the traditional screen.
