At the recent CeBIT trade show Samsung exhibited an ambient light powered LCD screen. The prototype featured a 46-inch screen that supported full HD resolution video, at 1920x1080 pixels. Clearly the fact that Samsung has been able to cut down power consumption by such a margin that it can be powered by ambient light is an impressive feat but would I have to switch on extra lights in order to watch my TV at night?
