Squid Skin Research Leads to Tiny Pixel Display Technology

A full-colour display technology, based on the simulation of squid skin, has been developed by Rice University’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP), in the USA.

Squid skin is able to ‘see’ colours and blend into the background. LANP’s technology is based on work to create new materials with the same properties.

“We know cephalopods have some of the same proteins in their skin that we have in our retinas, so part of our challenge, as engineers, is to build a material that can
