That was fascinating, Stick. Thanks for the link.

That's very interesting . I recently heard of a new upcoming technology that is based on quantum dots which is being implemented into a few products now and was possibly going to be a replacement for the future OLED tvs as it could be manufactured cheaper and not have that harsh light , but this may change everything again.

Btw when I seen the thread title I was concerned this was going to be about cancer findings associated with all the RF were being subjected to . You had me worried for a minute lol

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

W/ those huge monitors yur after you can sit pretty far way from them so no worries...
try a 24 to 32" wide screen stood on end....
no scrolling, larger font and you can back away from the monitor a good distance...
FWIW... TV's and monitors are interchangeable...
the only difference is that TV's have tuners and are way cheaper...

Also do some research on OLED. Currently OLED's are getting attention in monitors and TV's, but I am waiting for when they are available as general lighting. No more worries about kids, balls, and broken bulbs.

I heard about this a while back, but nothing since. I figured the concept had fizzled, but I'm glad to hear it's still being developed. Great potential. Thanks.

Really interesting idea. I've had to fix my phone screen twice and would love to have something more robust. Bet we won't see much of this for awhile.

It will be a while before we see graphene commercially. The usual process will see it used in specialist applications first that can handle all the high costs of the initial R&D, and then gradually move out into the more general applications.
