Blue-phase liquid crystal opens door to 1,500 DPI displays

Researchers have developed a new type of blue-phase liquid crystal that could allow for computers monitors, televisions, and other displays to cram significantly more pixels into the same space while using less power than what's needed to run today's displays, The Optical Society reports. One of the big upsides to this would be the potential for better VR headsets.

The idea of a blue-phase LCD is not a new one. Samsung built a prototype nearly a decade ago, though the technology hasn't gained much traction since then because it requires a lot of voltage and has a slow capacitor charging time.


Undeterred, a team of researchers at the University of Central Florida's College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL) worked with collaborators from LCD maker JNC Petrochemical in Japan and display maker AU Optronics in Taiwan.

Oh god yes please!!! Especially for VR. That's the only thing holding me back right now. VR really needs to get to 4K per eye to be practical.
