Qualcomm’s passive display technology, called mirasol, is making strides in low-power displays. Using tiny mirrors, mirasol reflects ambient light to create images. Somehow, Qualcomm managed to coax these mirrors to display full color and video at 30fps!

Hopefully we’ll see color mirasol displays hitting the smartphone space soon!

Qualcomm has just released a technology under their mirasol division that looks to be the number one contender in replacing e-ink. Not only does the display not use power when the display is stable, the frame rate is fast, 30fps, fast enough for video, and let’s not forget it COLOR!!! The question remains, how much. To see how it works just click here. There’s a video below demoing the technology.
