E-ink showed off their latest projects, as well as what their partners are working on, at SID Display Week last week.
But E-ink also revealed a couple new prototypes, including a dress made from the Prizm e-ink panels, and an ereader build around a foldable screen.
The prototype has a 10.2″ Mobius Carta E-ink display with a screen resolution of 220ppi. It wasn’t quite up to being folded in half with a sharp crease, but it could be rolled around a 7.5mm curve.
There’s no word on how many times it can be folded before breaking, or whether it would survive being rolled up, but the E-ink rep did say that the unit was ready for mass-production.
That’s a nifty looking concept, but does anyone really need a folding ereader anymore?
