Uni-Pixel has developed a new display technology that could succeed LCD and LED displays, and if all goes according to plan we might see something come to market as soon as next year. Opcuity uses one layer of MEMS film in in a TMOS (multiplexed optical shutter) device for results that are said to be ten times brighter and sixty percent cheaper to manufacture than LCDs (which use five layers). Since TMOS displays are very similar to LCDs, existing manufacturing lines can be used — lowering start-up costs and rescuing older assembly lines in the process. According to the company’s CFO, the manufacturing process “subtracts from existing LCD lines–you just need to remove some equipment that is no longer needed.” Samsung and Uni-Pixel have teamed up to produce 4-inch displays using the technology, but who knows? Maybe Microsoft Research’sinteractive office will become a reality sooner than you think.
