The Unipixel company in Texas had a TMOS panel based on a modified LCD LED structure. They replaced the LCD tricolor cell for a single Time Multiplexed Optical Switch and did RGB in time sequential mode. I had really great hopes for it since Samsung took a license in 09, but no word of it since.

Also they reported the classic LCD cell is less than 5% optically efficient so almost all the CFL or LED light source is turned into heat even for all white display. The TMOS cell is about 60% efficient so that would have been a huge power saver if it was used in tablets or laptops. Oh well, OLED might arrive one day.
