Bridgestone's Two Color E-Paper
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. If this is where we are in e-paper technology, that Origami DVD player concept is way far off. In fact, it seems that most e-paper products are years from release. I guess this explains why my e-paper t-shirt concept that displays continuously rippling pectoral muscles was rejected by so many companies.
