In case anyone is curious how a MEMS shutter technology would eliminate the need for color filters, as I was... the MEMS shutter can be switched much faster than liquid crystals, so they use a frame sequential color (FCS). That means they have three light sources, RGB, turned on in sequence for a single color sub-frame. This contributes to power savings since the normal loss of light with a filter is avoided. Got all this from a white paper you can find at their site.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
