What's Eating Jdavies?

and other marketing stories

Wtf? Electronic Paper is here!


This is the stuff of Sci-fi:
1.Newspapers that update themselves while synced wirelessly from the web
2. Magazine ads and book covers that change like bill boards
3. Basketball card stats that update every season
4. E-books that feel like real books
5. Paper currency that changes face value or currency depending on how much you load your e-wallet; or
6. If you are sinister Casino man, you can have a Ten of Clubs change into a Jack of Spades when you needed it most!

And it's here! Well, almost.

Fujitsu's new electronic paper features vivid color images that are unaffected even when the screen is bent, and features an image memory function that enables continuous display of the same image without the need for electricity. The thin and flexible electronic paper uses very low power to change screen images, thereby making it ideal for displaying information or advertisements in public areas as a type of new electronic media that can be handled as easily as paper.

The more efficient version pre-empts other companies plans to be a pioneer in this technology. Consider Hitachi's plans to sell a commercialized LCD-based design; Philips and E-ink's monochromatic version launched last year while Seiko Epson's e-paper version won't be available anytime soon.
