I finally found the Polymer Vision Readius nestled quite close to the press room. This is the rollable display everyone has been talking about and it’s actually quite cool. The device is about as big as a flashlight and has a 5-inch greyscale, 16 “color” screen that updates in about a second. This is more like the Sony Reader than anything else and it doesn’t appear to be available for sale. Instead, they have one model hanging out at the booth, opening and closing incessantly, and just two folks hanging around talking about it. Clearly the world does not see their genius.
The includes an e-book reader application, an RSS reader, and music/podcast playback. There’s no way this thing is playing video but it’s an enticing thought.
