Pixel Qi 3QI Display
Swap this zero-glare screen for your netbook's current LCD, and you'll be able to watch video or surf the Web, even in direct sunlight. The Pixel Qi display, originally developed for the One Laptop Per Child project, adds a reflective layer to each pixel on a standard LCD, so when you turn off the glare-inducing backlight, the screen reflects ambient light and gives the pixels a faint glow, producing an effect similar to E-Ink. Pixel Qi screens will be prebuilt into tablets by year's end, with notebooks and cellphones following next year. $275.
