Two of the primary attributes of a display screen are:
1) Ability to produce a wide gamut of color
2) Ability to produce a wide intensity range of light levels
#1 has had much effort expended in attempts with good success.
#2 Efforts have been concentrated on increasing light intensity.
propose a display composed of LEDs or other light-emitting devices coupled to fibers similar to Polarbear fur, but designed to absorb ambient light, so that a "blacker than black" image can be conveyed.

based on my memories of coming up with nearby-listed ideas) that just
says "Vantablack display". I've long since forgotten what idea I actually

which I've just deleted (prior to taking that count), so I'll have to go back
and reduce the denominator by one on every idea I've posted with a
progress count. (The duplicate idea was listed above where I started
keeping track of my progress, and I confirmed it was introduced to the
list before then by looking at old versions of the list.)</off topic>
