It may not be mobile computing news, but we're always up for a new display technology. According to Afterdawn
, "Australian firm Arasor International and its US partner Novalux have unveiled what they see as the next revolution in visual technology - the world's first laser television which is poised to be half the price, twice as good, and consume a fraction of the electricity of conventional plasma and LCD TVs."
It is expected to be available at the end of next year, and cost less than $1000, but the screen size wasn't mentioned. Chief executive of Novalux, Jean-Michel Pelaprat, was quoted as saying it will be strong in the larger-than-40" television market. "All of a sudden what you see is a lifelike image on display. Combine that with energy efficiency, price advantage and the fact that the laser TVs will be half the weight and depth of plasma TVs, and... plasma is now something of the past."
