AUO flexible paper comes with battery pack

At one point in time, getting digital displays to be flexible proved to be quite a challenge for engineers, but it has been some time since they have already managed that feat – and now the challenge lies in making sure such flexible displays will be able to display far better resolution in addition to making sure the resolution count and color, brightness, et al, are improved constantly. AUO might […]


Erasable e-paper hails from Taiwan

i2R’s e-paper is a new kind of paper that might just help prevent even more trees from being felled just because we love printing far more documentation than is actually required, in addition to a gazillion other excuses.

E-paper prototype is disposable

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 […]


LG dips toes in color electronic paper niche

LG Display must have taken a quick look around, realizing that the color electronic paper market does have potential for another player – which is why the South Korean display company giant will be introducing two coor prototype displays which were paraded at FPD International in Japan. Both of them will measure 9.7-inches diagonally, where the first has full color capability at 800 x 600 resolution – which is the […]


Sony prototype of flexible e-paper display might usher in new era of e-book readers

E-paper displays have their advantage and disadvantages over a standard LCD/LED panel, and while they are flexible and suck up very little juice, you can’t really throw fast moving graphics as well as millions of colors at it.

The […]


Samsung exits e-paper panel production

Samsung has announced that they will no longer be present in the e-paper panel production industry, citing reasons such as “cost issues” alongside having a dim view of e-paper’s future. Of course, one can never predict anything correctly (even Paul the Octopus got it wrong before), but it is interesting to see a global giant like Samsung actually heading away from the e-paper future instead of leading the way. This […]


Nemoptic’s Active Matrix Binem Display

The folks over at Nemoptic have come up with a rather interesting tiny display dubbed the Binem Active Matrix E-paper display.

Another interesting feature is that it can also be backlit, which helps to set it apart from […]


Tokyoflash E-paper Timing Watch

Tokyoflash, certainly no stranger to weird and innovative watch designs, has come up with a new concept watch design that uses e-paper to show the time digitally in negative spcace (so you can see the time by looking for the digital numbers between the dark dots). Since it also sports Bluetooth connectivity, it can also vibrate to notify you of messages and call notifications. You’ll be able to control the […]


Samsung 10.1-inch e-paper paraded

Samsung is currently showing off its 10.1″ color electronic paper (e-paper) device at FPD International 2009 in Japan, and hopes to roll out this e-paper in volume from one to two years’ time. It manages to retain its slim profile thanks to integrated gate ICs on the glass TFT substrate, which in turn is combined with E Ink Corp’s e-paper and a color filter.
