Advancements in Retina Display

Advancements in Retina Display

The country’s technology leaders never stand still and they are continually improving their products. It’s why major players such as Apple, Microsoft, and Google stay at the top of a competitive industry.

The Power of the Retina Display

One recent example of a company who is doing this right is Apple. Apple’s new Retina display provides the clearest images and videos compared to any other. This is due to the 2,048-by-1,536-pixel resolution. Digital Trends recently wrote an interesting article about it, and it seems like Apple isn’t stopping there.

Arming the MacBook Pro with High-Tech Visuals

What does Apple have planned next? Seemingly they are going to launch a line of MacBook Pros with a resolution of 2,880-by-1,800 pixels and a 15-inch screen. This is twice the clarity of the current MacBook Pro line. The idea is that by constantly raising the pixel density the human eye will ultimately be unable to identify the individual pixels. The human eye will then see the images as single continuous tones instead of a grid. This will make the images nearly flawless.

Not a New Technology

What is really intriguing is that this is not actually a new technology. The U.S. military has been using the technology behind Retina displays for some time. They apply it to their flight simulators to train pilots. Moreover, IBM has used it in a few of its super-computers. But now that Apple is driving this into the hands of the consumer, it’s going to change the game once again. Tech giants can’t ever afford to stand in place. And with its Retina display, Apple is again reaching for new heights.
