Microsoft researchers have built a prototype display technology that mimics the optics in a telescope (at the scale of individual display pixels), with results that are faster and more efficient than a liquid crystal display (LCD).

The new telescopic pixel design uses reflective optics, and currently can get about 36 percent of the backlight out of a pixel. The researchers believe they could get this up to 75 percent. The new design takes only 1.5 milliseconds to turn a pixel dark then light again, about six times faster than a typical LCD pixel.
