electrowetting

Normally, technology that involves e-paper of sorts are more often than not expensive, so we are pleasantly surprised to read about a new kind of e-paper prototype that is disposable. Yup, you read that right – e-paper that can be recycled once you no longer need them. This is the idea of professor Andrew Steckl from the University of Cincinnati, who managed to show off how electrowetting paper functions in a similar manner to electrowetting glass. This particular form of e-paper is extremely cheap, very fast, full-color and can be trashed once you’re done with it. We’re not too sure just how far that claim goes, but for the sake of our planet, why not be optimistic about the situation? After all, we’re merely looking after the planet for our kids.
