Samsung & Stanford Develop Screen With 10,000 PPI

Samsung partnered with researchers at Stanford University to create a new display technology for Virtual Reality (VR) applications. Whilst display technology has reached extremely high resolutions, most are intended to be viewed from a distance. When a VR screen is placed directly in front of your eye, even 4K resolution starts to look pixelated. This is the problem Samsung and Stanford set out to solve. They have developed a new screen with a resolution of 10,000 PPI (pixels per inch). Needless to say, the display is just a prototype at this point and probably won’t make it to production devices for many years, but it shows promise for VR hardware.
