3M Invests In Pixel Qi

Pixel Qi offers one of the most unique screen technologies I have seen. The Pixel Qi screens are unique because they can work indoors or outdoors. They use a neat method of switching between backlit and monochrome modes. 3M's investment should speed up engineering, and the spread of their technology. 

The current available 10.1 inch sceen has a resolution of 1024x600 and sells for about $275.  Pixel Qi has two new screens in development which are a new 10.1 inch screen at 1280x800 and the second one is a 7 inch screen at 1024x600.

All I hope is that prices drop and they make new resolutions available.  I would love to have a 1366x768 for my Fujitsu Lifebook T580.

  1. sweet, i like that 3M sees some good in the emerging technology!

  2. Pixel Qi just needs their technology to be on popular devices. I thought the Amazon Kindle Fire would get something similar to Pixel Qi... but instead it ended up being very close the the PlayBook.
