According to Pr. Shin-Tson Wu from University of Central Florida’s College of Optics and Photonics, "Today’s Apple Retina displays have a resolution density of about 500 pixels per inch, but with our new technology, a resolution density of 1500 pixels per inch could be achieved on the same sized screen. This is especially attractive for VR (virtual reality) headsets or AR (augmented reality) technology, which must achieve high resolution in a small screen to look sharp when placed close to our eyes."
