Samsung develops technology to use soda-lime bottle glass for LCD panels


Samsung’s gone bankrupt, donncha know? Well why else would they be manufacturing LCD panels using cheap-as-chips soda-lime bottle glass? It can’t produce a crisp, clear image with all those brilliant colours, can it?

According to Samsung, it can.

They’ve just shown off a 19″ LCD panel at the FPD International show, and are currently planning to mass produce the panels to varying sizes. The concept panel they touted at the FPD was a 1280 x 1024 resolution panel with a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. Whatever can Samsung melt next? It could be the next big internet ‘Will It Blend’ meme. Started here first, folks.
