Product Photo Update: Pixel Qi 10″ LCD Display in Reflective Mode

An update to a new product we announced last week. We’ve added a new photo to the product page for our 10″ Pixel Qi LCD Display, to illustrate how it looks in reflected mode.

We’re really excited to offer the revolutionary Pixel Qi display, a full color screen that can also be used in daylight. The Qi has three modes – backlit color, backlit grayscale and daylight grayscale. In normal office/indoor use you’ll want to go with keeping the backlight on to reveal the color layer. The screen works just like any other 10″ TFT with fast refresh (not like slow e-ink). When a bright light shines on it, the display turns ‘gray’ but is still visible. When outdoors in bright light, the backlight can be turned off to revert to a transflective display mode which is much lower power. For much more information please check out the Pixel Qi website.

  1. The Nokia N810 uses such a transflective screen. I’m disappointed no other such devices have been made.

  2. Pixel Qi screens are incredible for using out in direct sunlight. The brighter the sun, the better. Thanks to Adafruit for making them available to a wider user base.
