MicroDisplay is hoping you don't mind a little junk in your trunk when it comes to TVs. This summer they're debuting a new breed of rear projection TVs based on their LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) chip dubbed liquid fidelity. The chip was originally meant for use with virtual-reality goggles, but since that didn't pan out, they're gonna shove 'em into rear projection TVs and in the process lower the price on their sets. The result is you'll be able to buy a 56-inch LCOS TV for around $1,300.

While that sounds great, personally I think I'd still choose an LCD over a rear projection, especially since LCD prices are still falling.
