LG Philips LCD makes smudge-free screen

Non-stick cookware technology in notebooks



LG Philips LCD claims it has developed a smudge resistant LCD screen that relies on a technology very much like the one used in regular non-stick cookware. It claims that the new surface will allow users to remove smudges, dirt and dust in the blink of an eye.

The company points out that certain anti-glare screen coatings do the opposite, retaining the dirt and grease on the screen, so the new anti-smudge layer should help keep the notebook clean.

"Our new panel employs a principle similar to that used on non-stick frying pans. Dirt and oil can easily be wiped away," claims Ahn Byung-Chul, Development Chief for Advanced Technology. "Fingerprints have always been an especially big annoyance, and if they are not cleaned off immediately, they become even harder to remove from the screen."

So, don't worry about those pesky kids and annoying colleagues who don't seem to understand the difference between a touchscreen and a regular screen. Their greasy fingerprints might soon be a thing of the past, as LG Philips claims that it will start producing the new screens in the first half of 2008.
