In fact, Pixel Qi has already hacked their screen into an Acer Aspire One netbook (pictured above). The screen can work as a traditional backlit LCD when indoors, have that backlight disabled to be perfectly visible outdoors, and toggled into a very energy efficient e-paper mode. The 3Qi screen will reportedly cost a little more than conventional LCD screens at first, but costs will go down as production volume picks up, according to Jepsen. Pixel Qi will be demonstrating engineering samples of its 3Qi product at Computex next week.
