At the same time this technology is yet to settle: it is to bring together three streams into one delta: that of microLED chips suppliers (Nichia, Osram), display producers and technology transfer and assembly.

Okay, we may be dreaming, but imagine: a light emitting surface that lights up the space, displays an app interface, verifies the user identity and adjusts its settings, brings up custom news and content.
