The company develops innovative displays that can operate in two modes – color and monochrome. In the first case, the screen displays the full-color image, and the second are achieved low power consumption and the ability to work outdoors in bright sunlight.

However, in March 2013th Ms. Jepsen left the Pixel Qi, going to work in the laboratory unit displays Google X. In the middle of the same year at Pixel Qi had problems with the release of the screens that appear to be associated with a reluctance to take on small producers orders. As a result, now the company does not respond to phone calls or emails, or on any other attempts to establish a connection.
