Readius Rollable Displays From Philips


Remember when we discussed the prototyping of e-ink in the form of clock? Now another version has appeared. Philips, who know a thing or two about electronics are unveiling a roll-up-able screen that can show digital information from text to images. They maintain that as electronic devices get smaller we still need to clearly see information and ‘rollable’ screens are the way to go. According to the press release they consume very little energy. This would hopefully reduce the battery load required to power the 5 inch (128mm) screen, with its four levels of grey, which are said to be very readable in daylight. Philips don’t plan to bring the concept to market just yet. But the technology does bode well for reducing our energy demands from information appliances.
