When you think of cutting-edge displays, you probably picture a giant modular screen or even a rollable TV.

Mojo Vision has just showed me the complete opposite: a tiny monochrome display measuring half a millimeter across that I can only see under a microscope.

Silicon - Valley - Startup - Technology - Phone

The Silicon Valley startup 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.

This miniature, 14,000-ppi display isn't an actual product -- yet. Mojo Vision is keeping quiet on how the display will eventually be used, but Steve Sinclair, Mojo Vision's senior vice president of product and marketing tells me "we're building something pretty audacious." With a density of 200 million pixels per square inch, he says it's perfect for the application the company is trying to build.

Reality - Devices - Magic - Leap - Microsoft

Instead of augmented reality devices like the Magic Leap One or Microsoft Hololens, which have a display inside a bulky headset, this technology could be placed very close to the eye. Its hexagonal shape also gives me a pretty good idea of where this might finally end up. A previous CNET report indicated that this mystery product is likely to be contact lenses.

To the naked eye, however, this display looks like nothing more than a miniature green dot. It's not even the size of a pinhead. But under a microscope, it becomes clear I'm looking at something big. Staring down into the scope, I adjust the focus and see a quick looped clip of Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You...
