Thin metallized polymer foils can be made to function as large scale MEMS devices. Distinct from traditional Si MEMS devices, the moving element is actually the polymer foil itself. The polymer can be fabricated into an array of small pixel-like shutters to create large flat panel displays for low cost digital billboards or can be incorporated between the panels of a thermal window to create a dynamic window shade for considerable energy savings in residential and commercial buildings.
