Saturday Video: The Flat Panel Display

By January 28, 2006Cool Stuff Being Made

How Flat Panel Displays Are MadeLast week in this space we posted a great animation from Applied Materials showing how a microchip is made. Well, now we move one more step up the food chain — thanks again to Applied Materials — and present this 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.
