Improve users' experience of interacting with the digital world by creating new technologies for updatable physical display surfaces. These display surfaces should combine and surpass the best features of existing displays and print, and also should be produced by low-cost print-like processes.



  • devices will be more capable, have more flexible form factors and consume less power
  • rapidly customizable print-like manufacturing will reduce manufacturing costs and enable greater product differentiation and faster lifecycles
  • new opportunities for content delivery and web services will flow from updatable, interactive, full color, print-resolution displays viewable in ambient light
  • lower costs and a wider range of form factors will increase the total area of deployed information surface, and therefore grow the market for both appliances and related services such as content subscription




  • roll-to-roll manufacturing technology for electronics manufacturing
    • self-aligned imprint lithography
    • additive processing for embedded conductors
    • imprint-based template formation

  • electro-optical effects compatible with flexible substrates
    • color reflective
    • emissive
