But don't worry! It's not nearly as messy. But if an electrowetting display isn't a child's worst nightmare, what is it? Electrowetting is a type of e-ink display technology…E-ink displays dominate the e-reader market, as they simulate paper and are more comfortable to read than traditional LCD displays. The bulk of e-ink displays—including those from E Ink, the company that currently dominates the market—are electrophoretic, using charged titanium particles in oil to create shades of grey. A voltage is applied across each pixel to turn them on and off. Electrowetting displays use the same underlying technology but replace the titanium with layers of colored oil and water.
