New Venture Partners LLC and Philips Research today announced creation and funding of their first spin-out Liquavista.
Liquavista develops electrowetting displays.
Producing bright, colorful images, which show video content at very low power, Liquavista’s products offer excellent indoor and outdoor viewability and are suited portable and mobile applications such as MP3 players, watches, cameras, phones, DVD players and automotive applications. Liquavista will show examples at the Society for Information Display’s 2006 exhibition taking place in San Francisco between the 6th and 8th June 2006.

What is Electrowetting?
Electrowetting makes use of the natural forces intrinsic to an oil and water interface and methods developed for the manipulation of these forces within hydrophobic (unwettable) materials. An oil and water mixture is encapsulated by a highly hydrophobic material which causes the water to avoid the surface by forcing the oil to act as an intermediary. More details.
