The Wall Street Journal looks at TVs using Quantum Dot technology from Nanosys.
TV’s next leap takes it closer to real life. It’s not 3-D, or more pixels. Instead, new screens can show the highs and lows that color reality: the reflection in an eye that’s 500 times brighter than the pupil next to it, the countless gradations in a head of hair. In many of these sets, the extra colors are made possible by awesomely named quantum dots, which emit more colors on an LCD screen.
