    This would be a lot better IMO. Any downsides to this?

    As long as they can match the speed and accuracy of a conventional scanner without affecting the display quality I can't think of one.

    That said, there have been reports like this for the last 2 years now. I'm sure that sooner or later they'll be right, but it's clearly a bit trickier than people expected.
