A promising path for high brightness or high efficiency full color displays is to stack multiple displays, so that red, blue and green pixels are on top of each other, rather than side-by-side as in a conventional single display. In addition, at least one reflective display, the cholesteric display, can double the brightness of its reflective state if a left handed cholesteric display is stacked on top of a right handed cholesteric display. One of the obvious problems in stacking displays is in interconnecting the rows and columns of each layer to their respective driver electronics. Each layer could be connected to row and column drivers via a TAB or heat seal, as would be done in a conventional single layer display.
