Two new screen technologies were shown off this week which could reduce the power strain on mobile devices. Both technologies significantly reduce the power required to light a display, which is typically the majority of a display's power drain. Qualcomm's iMoD uses a complex mirror to even out ambient light and use that to light a transflective-type display. iMoD can supply its own light when no ambient light is available. Liquavista screens, developed by Royal Philips use elecrowetting to create an image using captive droplets of dyed oil. Currently the displays are only available in monochrome, but full color versions are under development. MIT, meanwhile, is developing a new way to power devices using ultra dense capacitors created with nanotubes. The capacitors can can hold the same-or greater charges as current battery technology but only take a few minutes to recharge.
