Samsung Electronics and Unidym have demonstrated the world's first carbon nanotube-based color active matrix electrophoretic display (EPD) e-paper. Carbon nanotubes have extraordinary electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties. The EPD has distinct advantages over today's standard flat panel displays. They have very low power consumption and are highly readable even in direct sunlight. Because the EPD uses carbon nanotubes, applications can include e-paper and displays that are very thin. Samsung and Unidym showed off a 14.3-inch display, but the technology can be used for touch screens, point-of-sale terminals, games, portable computers, cell phones, personal digital assistants, and other hardware.

This display is not a big truck

It's a series of TUBES!!!

Seriously though, I'm still waiting for OLED display technology to replace LCD already. I wonder if this is going to steal its thunder ...
