Update on Electronic Paper

We’ve been promised this for years and it’s apparently heading for prime time within our current strategic planning frames!
The Future of Electronic Paper [The Future of Things]
“Thirty-five years in the making, electronic paper is now closer than ever to changing the way we read, write, and study — a revolution so profound that some see it as second only to the invention of the printing press in the 15th century. Made of flexible material, requiring ultra-low power consumption, cheap to manufacture, and—most important—easy and convenient to read, e-papers of the future are just around the corner, with the promise to hold libraries on a chip and replace most printed newspapers before the end of the next decade. This article will cover the history, technology, and future of what will be the second paper revolution.”
Hmmmmm. Mass market by 2012…. Colour…. Cool. It’s already showing up at Toys R Us, my favourite place to look for early trends.
