E Ink showed off new eReader prototypes with crisper, brighter color, and flexible backplanes. Full details can be read at Technology Review.
On the floor of the exhibit hall at the Society for Information Display conference in Seattle this week were many amazing technologies. One of the things that impressed me the most was E Ink's latest prototypes. The company still isn't providing full color, video capable displays, but the picture on their latest screens has a better color gamut and it's crisp and easy on the eyes. Other companies have leapfrogged E Ink with color, video-capable reflective displays, such as Qualcomm's Mirasol, but E Ink's electronic paper is getting better and better. (See the video below.)
