Sony may be putting some of its Blu-ray technology to a different, but still HD, use as the Nikkei
reports it plans to cover LCDs , OLED
s, solar cells and anything else it can find with "Moth Eye" to reduce glare
. By putting tiny bumps on the display film, it can apparently cut reflection to 0.1-percent or less, which is 1/30 the amount reflected by current displays
, with the additional benefit of boosting light display, so screens can use less power. All in all this should make for better looking HDTVs, along with longer battery life for portable devices, and of course Sony will be willing to license it to other firms once it's available in 2010.
