E Ink’s next generation e-paper

A posting on the Electronista blog features two video demos of E Ink’s next generation e-paper. The prototype in the first video has nearly double the contrast ratio of current e-paper and is able to display animations. The new e-paper will be in production in the coming months and could be incorporated into some devices later this year.

The second video features a display that can be bent slightly and is more durable than current e-paper. In the video, Sriram Peruvemba, Vice President of Marketing at E Ink, says that the display will be used for dedicated textbook devices which have not been announced yet. This display will likely be available towards the end of this year or early next year.
