The Future King of Flat Screens?

Abstract:
For any company hoping to jump into the flat-screen TV market, it helps to have a few things. For starters: ultra high-tech factories, a sizable labor force, and billions of dollars in cash. Nano-Proprietary Inc. (NNPP) has none of those. Yet the Austin (Tex.) research outfit's next-generation TVs just might give the industry titans a good scare.

Experts in the field say prototypes of the technology, known as carbon nanotube displays, or CNTs, could offer clearer high-definition screens than plasma or liquid-crystal displays, the dominant flat-panel technologies. And because CNT displays will be "printed" using ink-jet technology rather than being cut from huge, fragile glass sheets, they could be made for at least 10 times less than the sums now being spent by LCD and plasma makers.
