“Qualcomm’s mirasol displays bring living color to technology by applying one of nature’s most remarkable innovations – the butterfly’s wings. These highly developed structures reflect light so that specific wavelengths interfere with each other to create nature’s purest, most vivid colors. By studying and mimicking nature’s processes and structures – a field of study called biomimetics – Qualcomm engineers have developed the nature-inspired mirasol display solution. By using this brilliant, time-tested biological development as the launching point for the new IMOD technology, Qualcomm brings nature to light effectively and efficiently in a cutting-edge display that will reshape the industry.” (from company website)
