E Ink Close to a Prototype

A private company based out of Cambridge Massachusetts has a working prototype of a paperlike display that is only 0.3mm thick, which can be rolled into a half-inch wide scroll. They are working with Royal Phillips Electronics to create a prototype consumer product within the next year.

It works with thousands of tiny particles, white on one side, black on the other, arranged into a matrix. Electric impulses set the position of these particles, so that the “writing” on the paper can change.
