Japan Display Unveils High-Resolution Screens For Use In VR

With virtual reality (VR) headsets being more or less up in your face, resolution is important because it means that the pixels are less obvious which in turn can make the experience more realistic and immersive.

Japan Display has recently announced the creation of separate 1,001 PPI and 803 PPI displays that they have designed specifically for use in VR.

While passwords and passcodes are still used, biometric security has gained a lot of popularity in recent years.
