Philips has developed an interesting method of using a rotating prism
to make larger displays much more manufacturable. The panel is LCOS
(liquid crystal on silicon) and the 200 Hz rotation of the prism washes
the RGB across the display in bands fast enough that the human integrates
it (supposedly) into a single highres flicker-free image. Pretty neat.

There'll be a demo of the new screen (no size given) at the Society for
Information Display in San Jose in the first week of June.
