Show us a friend or family member who genuinely does not want to get a new Smartphone or tablet this holiday season, and we’ll show you someone who probably isn’t being honest about their holiday wish list. Or any device that has a digital display screen. Because not only do these devices provide endless hours of fun and distraction—they’ve also become practically indispensable for everyday living.
If you have a car that was built since 2015 then you probably have an electronic display that allows you to pick your radio station, control your comfort, set your destination and answer your phone. Some functions can be voice controlled, but most often you have to look away from the road to fiddle with the touch screen. And the glare on the screen makes visibility even harder. This is a recipe for an accident.
The new Apple iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr have been recently released and the surface of these phones are the largest ever. At the size of 6.5 inch display for the Xs Max, it is almost as large as a small tablet. But is it a phone? If manufacturers keep increasing the size of phones someday we will have to carry them on our shoulders like the old “boom boxes” of the 1980s.
Today’s car windshields are much bigger than in the past which means more sunlight is coming in during the daytime. This results in more glare reflecting back from the dashboard which makes it hard to see the road or your radio and GPS display.
Fall is here once again which means cold and flu season is not far behind. For restaurants and stores it can be a difficult time of year. Customers come in with all types of germs, colds and even the flu. These germs can pass from customer to server or store clerk. And the touch screens we use for order entry or credit card checkout will be full of germs that will transfer from one user to another.
According to leading ophthalmologists and a recent report from GigaOm’s technology research platform, long-term exposure to blue light after dark can lead to chronic insomnia, and even breast cancer. This blue light however is only given off by devices using Light Emitting Diode (LED). These would include computer monitors, tablets, flat-screen TVs (such as those manufactured by Samsung, Sony, and LG), and OLED TVs with curved screens, including Panasonic, Samsung, and LG.
Airlines use monitors around the terminal to provide flight information to travelers. However, many terminals have glass ceilings and lots of windows where sunlight comes in and creates glare on these monitors. This glare can make reading the display impossible. This is why airlines and terminal managements have consulted NuShield to help battle the glare.
Have you been thinking about putting a television on your back porch or in a Florida room that is exposed to sunlight? One thing you have to take into consideration is the reflection from your surroundings. Today’s TVs are thinner than ever, bigger than ever and able to produce the most amazing picture. And having a big TV outside lets you watch sports or other favorite show from the pool, deck or sitting on the porch.
It is football season again and it’s time to hit the road in your RV to follow your favorite college or professional team. And tailgating is more fun when you have a television installed on the side of your RV to watch the early games.
