BASF makes electronic signs colorful
TeleRead mentions briefly that BASF has gone into partnership with SiPix (see also our links from August here and here) to develop coloured e-paper applications. I found the original press release which states:
“We estimate that e-paper applications will reach a market potential of around €500 million in the next 10 years,” said Markus Kropp, Business Manager at BASF Future Business. “We see e-signs as a way of entering the promising market of e-paper applications such as electronic newspapers and magazines, e-books and smart cards, in other words chip cards with additional electronic functions. By cooperating with SiPix we are also strengthening our activities in the fast growing electronics sector.”This kind of development is vital for e-books, e-papers and e-zines, not to mention PDAs. It will be interesting to see whether eInk/Phillips, Sipix/BASF or a third party wins in the end. Sony has already a product on the market and if they follow the lead from their music player department and take all the proprietary stuff away so their reader can read e-books in some or all of the de facto formats (eReader, iSilo, MS Reader, Mobi), they have a winner.
