Look ma no optics. Bending light with a tiny chip | Solid State Technology


Imagine that you are in a meeting with coworkers or at a gathering of friends. You pull out your cell phone to show a presentation or a video on YouTube. But you don’t use the tiny screen; your phone projects a bright, clear image onto a wall or a big screen. Such a technology may be on its way, thanks to a new light-bending silicon chip developed by researchers at Caltech.

Look ma no optics. This technology looks very promising. Thin devices could project images without lenses making our Scifi dreams come true.
