Paper view technology
Siemens has produced cheap, paper-thin TV screens that can show moving images on anything made of paper or carton, for example on newspapers, magazines and packaging. Siemens claims that the screens are able to show anything a computer screen or a TV can show, albeit in a somewhat lower quality. Instruction manuals could for example demonstrate how to use a product. Consumer goods could be demonstrated in a movie on the box.
The product is expected to appear in more expensive magazines at first and when the prices comes down even in newspapers, for example as attention grabbers on the front page. The price is expected to be £30 for one square metre and to be ready by 2007.
This product is "use-and-throw-away" technology, rather than durable, flexible screens for ebooks. However, being able to produce really inexpensive screens gives hope that the latter are around the corner as well.
