Fujitsu Monitor Uses No Energy In Idle Mode
Fujitsu Siemens Computers has developed the world’s first monitor that requires no electricity when in idle mode, RedOrbit reports.
A new switch in the monitor turns off the monitor completely when the computer signal is absent and turns it on again when the signal reappears. The technology could save companies several dollars a year in power costs per monitor. Fujitsu will begin selling the “zero-watt monitor” in the summer of 2008 for about the price of a conventional monitor. The monitor took home the “Innovation of the Year” from this year’s CeBIT computer trade show.
