October 26th, 2005

Canon has developed tiny fuel cells that hopefully would replace conventional batteries as the only power for digital cameras and printers in three years.

Moreover, Canon is also developing organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays to replace the liquid crystal displays (LCD) it buys from other firms for use in its cameras and printers.
