Ever wondered why the Mickey Mouse on
your LED television screen looks so like-like and real? That's right!
It uses my technology. Clunky big TV cathode ray tubes (CRTs) have
been replaces by flat panel liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) LCDs
are more energy efficient, cause less eyestrain, and more compact
then Cathode-ray tubes. This comes at a price though. The viewable
areas of LCDs are typically smaller than that of CRTs.
Everyone had seen LEDs. They are the bright pin lights often used on electronics as power and status indicators or as backlights. Using nanotechnology, these ultra-bright little lights can now be integrated on a panel densely enough to act as a display. BY putting them in while controlling intensity. Any color can be created. Nano-based LED displays are the size of LCD displays abut are even brighter than CRTs and allow for smooth, crisp animation. Also, like LCDs and unlike images, a process that reduces picture fidelity. But LED displays have existed for some time; many signs already use them. What nanotechnology adds is the ability to make them small enough to put them into color-controllable clusters and pack them densely enough to create an image that is smooth to the human eye.
Guess what. No more blur sloppy mickey mouses anymore.
But that's not all, Nanotecnology are also using nanotubes
to replace scanning electron guns, and if possible, manufacturers
are shrinking screens to be small and efficient enough for use in
