Circular display on its way


Can you imagine a car display that sports miniature TFT screens instead of a traditional dial cluster? That day may not be so far away, friends. Toshiba has just unveiled a set of circular TFT displays that are pretty close to being ready for prime time. The little 62mm diameter buggers are pretty powerful, sporting a contrast ratio of 600:1, and resolution of 240 x 240. It’s no Sharp Aquos, but for its intended purpose it should be more than suitable. The displays will be prominently featured at the upcoming Yokohama auto exhibition on October 24th, and we wouldn’t be too surprised if a high end auto manufacturer or two decided to integrate these into their upcoming product lines.
