Dell UP2414Q review: A stunning monitor - but 4K still isn't ready for prime time
April 22, 2014
When most people think of Dell, they think of low-end, cheap computer hardware - the sorts of systems that are often ubiquitous in offices or college campuses, but rarely deliver a good user experience. Dell's high-end monitors have always enjoyed a solid reputation, but it wasn't until I sat down to play with the recently released 4K (3840×2160) UP2414Q that I realized just how stark the difference was between a truly high-end display and the other monitors I've used. The UP2414Q can rotate up to 90 degrees (giving you a stretched desktop of 2160×3840). Unlike some panels in this class, which feature 10-bit color, the Dell is an 8-bit panel - but it's such a step up compared to mainstream TN displays, it feels like it displays far more colors than its bit-depth would indicate. At launch, the UP2414Q was selling for $1300, but it's come down significantly since then, hovering around the $1000 mark. The rapid price drops make it attractive, but buyers should pay careful attention to the pros and cons.

Leia aims to bring interactive Star Wars holographic displays to your phone
April 21, 2014
Now that the Dick Tracy wristwatch is nearing reality, is it time for holographic Star Wars-style messaging to make its debut? HP Labs spinout Leia believes it is. Using a clever system of diffraction gratings, its small displays produce 64 different versions of each image, allowing a viewer to move around an object or person shown on the display as if it was right in the room with them. CEO David Fattal spoke to an eager crowd of imaging researchers at Stanford University about his company's progress since it separated from HP. While the concepts behind Leia are the same as when the team's work at HP was first published in Nature last year, the new company now has full color prototypes with improved resolution as it prepares for a product launch.
