Bridgestone Tire has announced the world's thinest two color e-paper display, which measures only .29mm thick. Since the display is classified as e-paper, no power is required to leave an image on the screen once it has been displayed; power is only required to change the image. The display is also flexible and bendable thanks to a special ribbed structure developed by Bridgestone that prevents distortion of text and images.

I guess this explains why my e-paper t-shirt concept that displays continuously rippling pectoral muscles was rejected by so many companies.
