Nano-Pixels: Potential for Flexible, Low-Power, High-Res Screens

Like many important discoveries in the technology field, some are discovered quite by accident as is the case of an Oxford research team. While researching phase change materials, the team stumbled upon a nano-pixel high resolution display and promptly applied for a patent on the new technology. Now that's higher education at work. big grin

"This makes them potentially useful for 'smart' glasses, foldable screens, windshield displays, and even synthetic retinas that mimic the abilities of photoreceptor cells in the human eye."
