10.4-inch Color “Digital Paper” Debuted by ITRI

25 12 2007

Now this is a cool emerging technology. Last week Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) debuted their latest advancement that represents a big technological leap for “digital paper”. ITRI’s 10.4-inch flexible color display consists of two plastic substrates with a combined thickness of less than 10mm! Coupled with a flexible LED backing unit for illumination, this new display is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of where this technology will go. ITRI also demonstrated a flexible monochrome display that is 3.5-inches wide and can be manufactured with any length making it ideal for large public displays. Aside from its potential to slow deforestation (while unfortunately sustaining our dependency on oil), digital paper represents an exciting future that is limited only by the imagination. Low cost 3D displays, wearable displays and even flexible portable electronic devices are just the tip of the iceberg.
