Soken E-Ink Wall Looks Tacky But Promising

Illustration for article titled Soken E-Ink Wall Looks Tacky But Promising

Japanese company Soken showed off a wall made entirely out of 12x12 inch, 0.1mm thick e-ink paper displays at the FDPI conference in Yokohama this week. Called “Twist Ball,” after the rotating fine particles the paper is made of that change when voltage is applied, Soken's e-ink vaguely represented something made out of tacky Christmas wrapping paper. Even if it doesn't look so great, the technology behind Soken's e-ink is pretty impressive. The company is currently trying to make their displays show more than two colors at a time, which means that, maybe in the future, we'll be able to highlight on our Kindles. [Wired]

doesn't anybody notices its 12"x12" displays thats large, but if they throwing so many 12x12 displays on some box, then they might actually become available anytime soon.

Hopefully for less that 1500$ per developer kit (i am a student and 150$ would be kinda a top reach for me)

(i know epson made 13.3" version but i can find it for sale anywhere so I can't see how many times over my price range is it)
