The scientists at Cambridge University in the UK developed the smallest pixels ever; these newly developed pixels are a million times smaller than those tiny specs your smartphone has. The centre of each pixel is a tiny particle of gold which is a few billionths of a metre in diameter. These new pixels could be used in huge, flexible displays that are relatively easy to manufacture and cheaper to run.
