So *that's* how they work

Have you ever wondered how they make Liquid Crystal Displays?  How they manage to control each pixel separately? How they do this without the millions of separate circuits somehow being visible and ruining the image?

Wonder no more.

Who knew?!

(Well, not me, obviously).
