non-reflecting view on displays

I ran across this article on Nanowerk News. Apple should check this out for their displays.

New nanocoating ensures a perfectly non-reflecting view on displays

(Nanowerk News) A new nanocoating ensures a perfectly non-reflecting view on displays and through eyeglasses. The necessary surface structure is applied to the polymeric parts during manufacture, obviating the need for a separate process step. The hybrid coating has further advantages: the components are scratch-proof and easy to clean.

    Very interesting development. I find it amazing that they got the idea from nature. The eyes of a moth have a coating to prevent reflections to make them visible to predators and recreating the same technique allows them to dampen the transition between refractive indices, which cuts down the reflections.

    If it works well enough then they can forget having to offer special anti-glare models and just have them shipping with no glare, including the iMac and iPhone.

    Now, if they can just make the Zagg film non-reflective, so that protecting an iPad or an iPhone would not nullify the effect
