Killing Flies to make TV screens?

Here’s a novel concept for next-gen TV sets. My 4 year old daughter learned in school that flies have compound eyes and see the world in pixels, similar to the little dots you can see on a TV screen when you look really closely. So I took my 10x loupe to allow her to explore the TV screen in detail.

What really concerned her was if people kill flies to make TV sets. Based on the information she has available, this is a reasonable question. Why not use technology available in nature to build devices. She probably has not – yet – considered the potential for interactive TV, gesture control, and targeted advertising when every pixel on a TV screen can see what you do in front of the screen.

The creative potential when not limited by preconceived ideas is amazing..
