Pixel Qi’s new 3qi display is designed to let users switch between a high contrast, low power ePaper mode and a fully saturated color mode. Pixel Qi founder Mary Lou Jepsen already showed us what the ePaper mode looks like the other day. Now she’s uploaded a video showing the screen playing a movie in full color mode.

The screen is able to handle playback at up to 60fps. And while it’s hard to judge the image quality in a 9 second video of a netbook playing video… the results look promising. You can check out the super short clip after the break.

Update: Techvideoblog has a much, much longer video interview featuring Pixel Qi COO John Ryan and two netbooks showing the display’s ePaper and full color modes. I’ve posted that video after the break as well.
