How about an LCD screen that
doesnt luminate light? it might
have a light above or around it
maybe tho.. but the actual screen
wouldnt be lit, so its easier on
It would be cool too cause it
wouldnt look like a screen, just
a sticker sorta thing (could be a
sticker too! the wonders
||Huh? Do you mean a non-*backlit* LCD?
||So baked ... try any digital watch (just don't press the "light" button). Or a Palm handheld, most of them have a switchable backlight (to save battery power).
||The problem is that current LCD technology has rather poor contrast. Without backlighting, an LCD is black on grey, and very hard to read under many lighting conditions.
||Isn't it the flickering that causes eye strain?
||I believe this is what e-paper is most useful in accomplishing. That and displaying colors that arent colors (like reflective surfaces and such, squee!)
