The country’s technology leaders never stand still and they’re continually improving their products. It’s why major players such as Apple, Microsoft, and Google remain 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 when compared with 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 looks 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 release 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 concept is that by constantly increasing the pixel density the human eye will ultimately be unable to differentiate the individual pixels. The human eye will then see the images as single continuous tones instead of a grid. This makes the images practically flawless.
Not a New Technology
What is very interesting is that this is not actually a new technology. The U.S. military has been utilizing the technology behind Retina displays for a long time. They apply it to their flight simulators to train pilots. Furthermore, 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 likely to change the game yet again. Tech giants can’t ever afford to stand in place. And with its Retina display, Apple is once more reaching for new heights.
