According to a press release given this morning, 3M, producers of everything from Power tools to Dental products, has invested in Pixel Qi.
Pixel Qi has been rather quiet as of late, and not much has been heard out of their site since the launch of the Notion Ink Adam, the first device to ship with their screens.
As stated in the press release, Stefan Gabriel, President of the 3M new venture division stated: “Pixel Qi’s technology enables displays of such lower power and high usability that the vision of ubiquitous displays comes much closer to realization. In combining Pixel Qi’s disruptive display technology with our technology platforms, we can create new business opportunities in the consumer and commercial markets for 3M.”
Hopefully this will mean better viewing angles, sharper colors, and wider spread adoption in the market.
