Citizen Watch made a new digital clock that is as thin as paper. The clock, which uses electronic paper display technology, is said to be very easy-to-read, lower-power and fully conformable. The company claims the clock has about twice the contrast of a reflective LCD. The clock can be read in bright sunlight or in dimly lit environments at virtually any viewing angle.
>br> No backlighting is required and the clock also features a memory effect which requires no power to maintain an image. This leads to only 1/100th the power consumption of traditional display options.

It is also very versatile as it can be used to create curved, eye-catching shapes. Lots of new clock designs are now possible with this electronic paper display technology.

The clock will be launched later this year in Japan. More info and a photo over here
