Here’s this week’s “cool stuff being made!” – “…animation of the making of a flat panel display. In fact, you’re probably looking at one now. This shows you how once again you are surrounded by manufactured products: cars, food, clothing, flat panel displays. Without manufactured products, the world would be a quiet and empty (and hungry) place.” [via] Link.

My old CD burner (Yamaha CRWf1) had a feature that would let you burn whatever you wanted onto the unused portion of a CD. the easieit things to see would be checkerboard style images but most anything was possible
thats insane, i had that idea yesterday!
Good old memories of CD T@2.
This technology has been around since at least 2004, but I agree that it is a creative use of dead space and the optical properties of recordable disks.
“LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling” is the full name of the commercial product that incorporates the idea of utilizing the unwritten portions of a disk for labeling via the arrangement of “pits”. I believe the patent itself is owned by HP; it is licensed to the various drive makers who, as I understand it, embed it into the firmware.
Lightscribe is a bit different. that etches images on the face of the disks. Similar methods to do it though
