In the Maker Shed: Pixel Qi displays

Computers & Mobile

The Pixel Qi screen from the Maker Shed is a revolutionary LCD display technology for your netbook. This one-of-a-kind, plug-and-play 10.1-inch display offers two modes–an easy-to-read, real color, multimedia mode, or a crisp low power e-reader mode.

Upgrade your current display for incredible battery life, and the ability to use your netbook outside in full sunlight.
