E-Paper Enters Practical Use
ePaper is arriving at a steady pace.
In December 2005, passers-by stopped at the sight of an unfamiliar object that had appeared in one of the concourses of JR Tokyo station. Equipped with six monitors, the object cycled through displays of news, weather, station guidance and other subjects at about 5-minute intervals. The displays offered good contrast, but were monochrome, and the appearance was significantly different from the color displays with which everyone is familiar these days. Upon closer scrutiny, it was possible to read: "Demonstration test for electronic paper displays in progress."Read the whole article!
In 2006 a variety of equipment using E-paper is likely to start appearing here and there (Fig 1). In January of 2006, for example, Seiko Watch Corp of Japan released a watch using E-paper for the face display, while Ishida Co Ltd of Japan began marketing a shelf price tag using an E-paper display to supermarkets and other retailers. Other recent developments have included a practical, general-purpose E-paper display from Hitachi Ltd of Japan, and an equipment clock using E-paper from Citizen Watch Co Ltd of Japan for public facilities like stations and schools. Meanwhile Asahi Glass Co Ltd of Japan is developing a practical public display terminal. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.
