HYPOLED, an 18-month-old project tasked with creating OLED microdisplays for upcoming pico projectors
, has just released a report of its recent progress. Among the advances is a Fraunhofer
IPMS-designed all digital VGA, full color OLED microdisplay backplane with matching pico projector optics. The display measures just 0.18-mm thick and is already in prototype manufacturing. The super miniscule display is connected to a MediaBox enabling it to operate via WiFi. Fraunhofer is now expected to begin developing a prototype of the full projector, meaning that with any luck, our picos should be getting a teensy, tiny bit cooler in the near future.
