Due to unfortunate timing, E-ink ended up having to have a booth at two different trade shows last week. I reported on one booth at SID Display Week, and here is Charbax’s report from E-ink’s booth at Computex 2014.
As you can see in the video, E-ink shows off a number of interesting gadgets at Computex (more in fact than they showed at Display Week) including a couple Hello Kitty gadgets, Sony’s 13.3″ writing slate, the PocketBook CoverReader with an integrated E-ink display, and the Fujitsu Navit.
This last device was only announced in Japan a couple weeks ago, and as you can guess from the name it is a navigational tool. It was developed in partnership with Fujitsu and Aichi Medical University Hospital. The Navit has a 5″ E-ink screen, and it is intended to be used as a replacement for the paper and verbal instructions given to patients.
There isn’t much beyond the Navit that is new; everything else has been shown off at previous shows like CES and previous Computex and Display Week trade shows. Charbax missed only other new item at Computex, but Engadget caught sight of a several inch long display intended for a wrap around smartwatch.
And as you might recall, E-ink announced a 32″ color sign product at SID Display Week, which of course they did not have on display at Computex.
