Very interesting. Highlights:

Liquavista, spun out of the Philips Research Labs in Eindhoven two years ago, has won part of the backing from the government-funded Technology Strategy Board. The project is also backed by Plastic Logic.
Wasn't Plastic Logic a competitor to Philips/PVI? But I guess they've collaborated before, so maybe not....

The technology is based on a process called electrowetting, which uses electricity to manipulate a thin layer of liquid so that it changes colour. It uses far less power than a traditional liquid crystal display (LCD) and, crucially, the individual cells change fast enough to run video.
Far less power than LCD may not mean no power between screen refreshes... we'll have to see how this plays out.
