KIMM developed a stretchable distortion-free microLED display

Researchers from the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM) have developed a stretchable microLED display, that can be stretched in both directions. The researchers say that the display can stretched by up to 25% without distortion to the image.

The researchers report that they have managed to successfully fabricate a 3" microLED display. This was achieved by using metamaterials with unique mechanical properties that do not exist in nature - mainly that if they are stretched in one direction, they also stretch in the perpendicular dimension, and so the display is not distorted. They term the display a 'metadisplay'.
