Toshiba shows off automotive HD DVD, LCD display

Toshiba/Alpine car HD DVD

Showing at the Automotive Engineering Exposition, Toshiba has revealed two new technologies which may soon find their way into commercial products. The biggest of the two may be a car-based HD DVD player, the first of its kind, developed in conjunction with Alpine. The few facts known about it include the existence of a working prototype which is large in girth, and that a public release should happen sometime in 2008.

The second technology is a unique LCD display that integrates an optical sensor for each pixel. This means that rather than relying on standard touch technology, it can be controlled by finger shadows during the day, or finger reflections when operated at night. The display also uses no film coating, improving cost, brightness and contrast. No timeframe has been set for commercial use, but Toshiba is reportedly eager to put the LCD into production.
