As display technology moves on from LCDs to LEDs, Liquavista has gone in a totally different direction. Yesterday, the company debuted their brighter, more efficient ColorBright display using electrowetting technology.
The company claims that the displays are functional in dark and direct lighting situations, can be viewed at any angle and that they provide “TV-like picture quality” while consuming much less power than traditional LCDs. The technology is currently targeted for use in watches and cell phones, but there are plans for larger video displays as well.
The technology was developed to be compatible with existing LCD manufacturing processes, so its introduction can be quick and at low cost.
Screens are a major battery drainer, but the ColorBright display could significantly add to the battery life of your mobile device since it doesn’t rely on a backlight. This could be especially useful to devices such as cell phones, whose displays often unnecessarily drain the available power resources.
