Yes, the 'cans' look impressively like metal cans. On the subject of unexpected colors, the recently aired NOVA program "Making Stuff: Smaller" mentioned that the shape and size of (tiny) particles can influence the color. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/tech/making-stuff.html#making-stuff-smaller

Yes, isn't that a similar concept behind the new IMOD (Mirasol) panels been promoted as the next panels since these do not need back panel lighting. I can't wait to see these babies on mass productions and finally been able to use my notebook outdoors by the pool.

I wonder if he used a real church key to make the holes? What with all the pop-top cans these days I wonder if you can still buy a church key? If you could, how many of the younger generation would know what it was?
