I came across a video on BNet on the future of ink. Electronic ink (aka electronic paper) is the display technology powering the Amazon Kindle and pretty much every other serious digital book reader out there. The technology is also being tested with store signage in Wal-Mart and was used to power a multimedia panel on the cover of Esquire. If you’re not already familiar with the technology, or if you’d like to see more, watch the video below:
The key question in my mind is not what has the technology been used for so far, but what other imaginitive uses can people come up with that will improve the quality of our lives?
What do you think?
