Soap bubble is the world’s thinnest transparent display

Soon we won’t need a television to watch our favorite movies and can watch them on soap bubbles instead. Yes it is true as a team of scientists from the universities of Japan and the US have come up with the world’s thinnest transparent screen that can create either flat or 3D image.

The ultra-thin and flexible BRDF (bidirectional reflectance distribution function) screen is made from a mixture of two colloidal liquids.

Lead researcher Yoichi Ochiai from the University of Tokyo said that they have managed to control the properties by hitting the bubble’s membrane with ultrasonic sound waves emitted from speakers. Combining these ultra thin membranes with ultrasonic sound waves makes more realistic and vivid imageries on the screen. The soap bubble display will be visible at SIGGRAPH 2012 next month.
