Illustration for article titled NEC Tiles E-Ink Displays Into Massive A3-Size Sheet

I've said it before and I'll say it again: e-ink and e-paper displays are getting pretty darn funky...especially when you look at NEC's nifty solution that actually tiles multiple units. In fact, NEC can now tile up to eight microcapsule electrophoresis e-ink displays into one large screen, up to a maximum A3 size (that's 11.7 x 16.5 in inches). Crazily, this huge screen has only a 1mm border to it too. That means if you're prepared to accept a tiny bit of deadspace, you could perhaps tile those into a truly monster screen. There's little more info than a 10:1 contrast ratio—definitely no pricing or timings—but at least it gets our imaginations ticking over. E-ink broadsheet newspapers or wallpaper anyone?
