Google Invests $15 Million in University Spin-out Focused on Micro LED Technology

Google Inc has invested $15 million for a 13 percent stake in Glo, a university spin-out focused on creating nanowire-based LED-displays for mobile phones and smart watches as well as AR- and VR-applications. Glo, located in Silicon Valley and Lund, Sweden, has been commercializing its technology for creating direct view displays consisting of nanowire-based LEDs since 2008. Glo’s display technology is an example of what the industry refers to as micro LED, giving better contrast and lower power consumption than LCD screens while yielding higher overall brightness than OLED. The last few years, both Apple and Facebook-owned Oculus have acquired start-up companies within the field of micro LED. http://www.ledinside.com/
