    Yota To Mass Produce E-ink Phone In Singapore

    Russian phone maker Yota Devices will start making its first dual-screen e-ink YotaPhones in Singapore. The company has signed with Hi-P, a manufacturer in the country, to have it mass-produce the devices. Yota’s COO, Lau Geckler, told us that he is also in Singapore to help set up Yota’s Asian sales office and the company’s second R&D facility. Its original R&D center… Read More

  • Welcome To The Future: Polymer Vision Demos SVGA Rollable Screen

    This 6-inch screen displays black and white e-ink text and images at 800×600 pixels and can roll around a tube the circumference of a dime. If this isn’t the future of print, I don’t know what is. Designed and manufactured by Polymer Vision, the screen can be rolled and unrolled 25,000 times. The question, obviously, is why would you need a rollable display? Well, as… Read More

  • Epson And E Ink Show 9.7-Inch ePaper With 2,400 x 1,650 Resolution


    Electronic paper as a technology somehow evolves relatively slowly, but it evolves. Today Epson and E Ink announced they have co-developed a new ePaper display that’s sized at 9.68 inches and boasts 2,400 x 1,650/300 dpi quality. By way of comparison: the Kindle DX (9.7 inches) comes with 1,200 x 824 pixel resolution at 150 ppi. Read More

  • E Ink Shows Off More Flexible, Crunchable Screens

    It seems like everybody and their dog is trying to get a flexible display out there. TDK, Sony, LG, HP, and most recently Bridgestone are all going nuts trying to make this happen E Ink is no exception, and although they’re not planning on putting out a successor to their Pearl screen this year, they aren’t standing still, either. Check out these videos. Read More

  • Phosphor World Time Watch Full Review

    Phosphor watches can be credited with a very special honor. That being of the brand the officially popularized and mainstreamed e-ink watches. While they didn’t invent the concept, they made them cool enough and affordable enough for mainstream adoption. With prices under $200, now everyone can have a neat looking, easy to read e-ink watch on their wrist. The newer World Time watch adds… Read More

  • Study May Lead To Actual Paper E-Paper

    Let’s not get too excited just yet, but a study performed by Dr. Andrew Steckl at the University of Cincinatti’s Nanolab has shown that electrowetting (the process by which current e-ink displays work) works just as well with a paper substrate as a glass one. The implications are… far off at the moment. But still cool. Read More

  • Seiko E-Ink Watch Now Available For Pre-Order In Japan

    If you’ve been looking to slap a little E-Ink on your wrist and didn’t want to go the Phosphor route, Seiko has the watch for you. The Seiko E-Ink watch is essentially a high-tech LCD watch using E-Ink as the display medium, thereby reducing battery drain. Read More

  • E Ink's Color "Triton" E-Paper Screens Make Their Debut

    We all knew this was coming, though whether the first to market would be the frontrunner, E Ink, or one of its competitors, has always been up in the air. Other color e-paper technologies have been bumbling along for years; Fujitsu’s FLEPia jumped the gun on color e-readers way back in 2008, and technologies from Ricoh and Qualcomm might easily have taken the lead. But for now, it appears… Read More

  • Review: Phosphor's E-Ink World Time Watch

    I’m not a big fan of gimmick watches. While I love that guys like Tokyoflash are pushing design forward when it comes to wrist wear, I worry that much of their work is too esoteric and could alienate some potential watch nerds with their complexity. The biggest problem, I feel, is that on the low end the watch world is separated, like computer RPGs, into two two camps – the… Read More

  • Sony Makes Their Entry Into The "Flexible E-Paper" Party


    Sony joins LG, HP, and… themselves (just noticed that) in the race to put out a decent flexible display. This one, being shown at a dealer convention, is an e-ink based display with a plastic substrate, allowing it to be flexed and possibly rolled. I’m guessing that picture pretty much shows the limit of its flexibility, though. Can’t wait till you can write on one of… Read More

  • Seiko Active Matrix EPD Watch Hands-On

    The digital watch is back. Seiko’s new Active Matrix EPD watch will get you excited about non analog quartz timepieces once again. Digital has been here all along you say? Yea, that is true, but no self-respecting watch lover would wear one unless doing the laundry, mowing the lawn, or engaging in some other highly pedestrian activity. Go to any country that is “watch… Read More
