0.82mm "i-Lens" LCD screen
Samsung's new display is just 0.82mm thick

Samsung has taken the wraps off a prototype QVGA LCD panel (500:1 contrast ratio, 300nit brightness) that is just 0.82mm thick -- about the same thickness as a typical credit card. The new LCD panel is also 0.07 thinner than the previous title holder.

Samsung says that these new thin displays are a result of a new mobile technology dubbed "i-Lens." With i-Lens, Samsung is able to incorporate the panel assembly and the accompanying protective layer into a single shock-resistant module.

"Samsung’s R&D initiatives, including LCD module thickness reduction and reinforced shock resistance, will enable our customers to develop truly differentiated and more reliable, ultra-thin mobile products," said Executive Vice President Yun Jin-hyuk of Samsung's the Mobile Display Team.

Samsung notes that in traditional mobile phones, there is a 2 to 3mm space between the LCD module and the protective layer. With the i-Lens process, the protect layer is applied directly to the LCD module allowing for a thinner package.

The new 2.1" and 2.2" screens will be put into mass production in the latter half of 2007.

Speaking of Star Trek, a few weeks ago I read an article that scientists were able to "transport" several billion atoms over the distance of one meter. It's not much, but it's cool as hell to think they might make some stuff like transporters and cloaking devices.

Hmm, I dont think that was atoms but rather photons. At least that is what all this "transporter" fuzz was about over the last few years.

Yes, and by transport, they actually mean replication using quantum entanglement (if I remember correctly).
