"Researchers from Microsoft say they've built a prototype of a display screen using a technology that essentially mimics the optics in a telescope but at the scale of individual display pixels. The result is a display that is faster and more energy efficient than a liquid crystal display, or LCD, according to research reported yesterday in Nature Photonics ... The design greatly increases the amount of backlight that reaches the screen. The researchers were able to get about 36 percent of the backlight out of a pixel, more than three times as much light as an LCD can deliver. But Microsoft senior research engineer Michael Sinclair says that through design improvements, he expects that number to go up theoretically, as high as 75 percent."

I didn't even know MS did research in this field.

It isn't the size of the disk that counts, but how you use it.

Like I say about all "alternative" technologies that will replace lcd's and plasma some day...I'll start caring whenever my local electronics retailer has a wide selection of these wondrous displays at good prices.

Or any other field...must have bought the technology from someone that knew they couldn't produce it!

I think the research division is actually a pretty big deal for Microsoft. I know they snapped up some really bright minds in the computer graphics area. You might try their research website: http://research.microsoft.com/

I notice under hardware it specifically mentions MEMS and displays.

It never ends, a parade of 'you won't believe this display technology when it hits the streets'...they just never 'hit the street'.

Wow, I guess my posts got deleted... anyway...

It'll be interesting to see what this technology turns out to be like.
