Diggester (2492316) writes "For most people, when you think of bubbles you remember the childhood joy of seeing those floating, shimmering spheres you desperately want to pop, but for a group of researchers at the University of Tokyo, they see a new medium for 3rd dimensional displays.

Now this isn't your average soap, it's a special mixture that creates more of a "tough bubble" that can withstand the high frequency vibrations used to form the colloidal display. The initial applications of this technology are imagined as the world's thinnest 3D screen or flexible display."
