Google and Sharp team up on LCDs for virtual reality

Companies seek an alternative to Samsung's OLED technology

OSAKA -- Sharp and Google are jointly developing liquid crystal displays for virtual reality devices that require faster movement and higher resolution than smartphones.

The partnership was revealed by an executive from Google's virtual reality division at a conference organized by the Society for Information Display that ended Friday. The two companies seem to be jointly developing backlights and other technologies that allow for a smooth display and high resolution without leaving afterimages. Going forward, the American-Japanese partnership plans to develop technology that increases the graphic display's response speed.
