Look at what Irex have been doing lately (video)

A couple new videos were posted to Youtube yesterday from an employee of IRX Innovations. They haven't announced any product plans, but the videos give  us a few hints about what they're thinking. The first video shows a grayscale Sipix screen with 6fps video running on it. The second video is a closeup of the screen. The video is running at 480x640, which is below the full screen resolution of 600x800.It's only 6fps, so I really don't think it's usable for actual video just yet. But it's still faster than the ebook readers with Sipix screens.

IRX Innovations are a company formed from the bankrupt remnants of Irex Technologies, the ereader pioneer. Irex had one of the first E-ink ebook readers in 2006. That model was the Illiad, which had an 8" screen. Irex released 2 subsequent models before going bankrupt in 2010.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Ehhh, hasn’t another company done something like this with e-ink Pearl? This just doesn’t seem very useful for an e-paper reader. I’ll be excited when someone develops something superior to E-ink Pearl.
