Mary Lou Jepsen, CTO and inventor of the Pixel Qi technology, explains more of how the Pixel Qi 3Qi screen works, shows us a bit of how she works with her screen technology in her home lab, testing the angular performance in the OLPC screen and tells how power consumption can be saved further with a few motherboard modifications to behave like the OLPC laptop (turning off the processor and motherboard when they are not needed) and more.

Side by side comparison video showing the Pixel Qi 3Qi LCD screen next to the E-ink based Amazon Kindle, next to the transflective Toshiba R600 and next to a regular resistive touchscreen tablet laptop. Comparing performance in direct sunlight, in the shade and in a dark room with and without the backlight.
Following the initial video that was released showing the Pixel Qi screen during the Computex trade show in Taipei, Mary Lou Jepsen, CTO and Inventor of the Pixel Qi screen technology, answers user comments that were posted on the Engadget and Mobileread threads (among many other blogs who linked to the first video) with users from all over the world commenting and asking questions about the screen in the first video.

This is it, the revolutionary LCD screen by Pixel Qi that turns your netbook into a Kindle by the flip of a switch. As you can see in this video, thanks to Pixel Qi technology, your next LCD screens can now be very usable outdoors as well under the sunlight, in a very high resolution black and white mode and also keep a full color and bright back light indoors mode.
This is a demonstration from the first batch of the first working prototypes of this screen, and as you can see, it already looks amazing. Mass production of these screens are planned to be launched soon and should be available in any netbook (and later other devices such as smartphones) as long as the manufacturers decide that they want to integrate it in their products.

Chris Ball, OLPC Lead Software Engineer shows a fully working demonstration of the latest XO 1.5 motherboard fresh from the lab, runing a new faster Sugar Linux OS as well as multi-booting into a full Gnome desktop version of Fedora thanks to the increased storage, processing and RAM, the children will be able to boot a full Linux desktop as well running conventional desktop applications such as Open Office.
Mitch Bradley, OLPC Firmware Lead and President and CTO of FirmWorks and Richard Smith OLPC Director of Embedded Engineering talk about their work in bringing the One Laptop Per Child XO 1.5 motherboard up to fully working for Quanta to switch over the mass manufacturing of OLPC XO laptops to the version 1.5, until OLPC releases the XO 2 based on ARM sometime later when the correct components and software become available.
John Watlington, Vice President Hardware Engineering at One Laptop Per Child, shows us the latest status of the XO 1.5 project at a Hotel room in Taipei where team of hardware and software engineers from OLPC are working with Quanta and others to get the XO 1.5 version released in the next few months.
