There used to be a viewfinder for a cam using a paperwhite phosphor mini
CRT and a synched RGB colour wheel. Structureless pixels, nice colors.
Wanted to hack one for a HMD, never had the cash. Then LCD viewfinders
started to dominate.

I hope solid-state display HUD is in our future. That, and video
projectors. I'll be keeping a white wall in my flat free for that purpose.
But these metal halide lamps are a bit too expensive still, so you can't
run it 24/7.
