After founding in 2015, the company is working on what it calls “invisible computing” technology. Rather than constantly being distracted by having a phone in your face all the time, or the friction of an AR or VR headset, Mojo Vision says this tech can help you be more present and engaged with the real world. So if you get a notification or need to quickly access information, you’ll be able to see it at a glance, reports Cnet.

The miniature 14,000-ppi display uses MicroLED, a technology expected to play a crucial role in the future development of next-generation wearables, AR/VR hardware, and heads-up displays (HUDs).

The screen is ideal for use in ultra-small and dense augmented reality and virtual reality displays.

“It is information when you need it, and it’s not there when you don’t,” said Steve Sinclair, senior vice president of product and marketing at Mojo Vision. “We call it invisible computing. A lot of folks are focusing on MicroLEDs. It’s a good candidate for near-eye solutions. It can be used outdoors. Power is a consideration. And we drive the size of the pixels as low as possible.”

Unlike OLED, microLED is based on conventional GaN LED technology, which offers far higher total brightness than OLED produces, as much as 30 times, as well as higher efficiency in terms of lux/W. Therefore, MicroLEDs enable comfortable viewing outdoors.

This MicroLED display has a pixel density 300 times greater than current smartphone displays.

“We’re actually working on pixels that are even smaller than this,” said Sinclair. “Our goal is to eventually try and match the resolution of the human eye.”
