What characteristics of the Pixel Qi display make it visible under daylight conditions?

It seems to have something to do with "daylight grayscale". But what exactly does "daylight grayscale" mean? Is it something that can be accomplished/reproduced in software on any grayscale displays? Can it be reproduced on a color display?

The pixels are "transflective", meaning half-backlit and half-mirrored.
