Best Enabling Technology: Mirasol Display
LAPTOP's Best of CES 2010


Qualcomm mirasol display technology takes cues from nature to provide screens that look beautiful in all lighting conditions (including direct sunlight), utilize very little power and responding speedily to touch input. As mobile technology advances, consumers naturally desire to do more with their devices, including multimedia and gaming. Devices that incorporate mirasol displays will benefit from thinner, sleeker designs that offer great viewing experiences but won't need large batteries to last all day long. Qualcomm's engineers were inspired by butterfly wings and discovered a way to mimic how they create color. The resulting technology, Interferometric Modulation (IMOD), gives the mirasol display its low-power, highly reflective properties.
