Your Grandpa is Gonna Love the New ‘E-Paper’
Newspapers were supposed to die couple years ago. It’s been a long slow death because some people just like to buy an actual newspaper in the morning. Shout out to you Pee-Paw! Now, maybe the newspaper fans can have their ink and read it too. See what we did there?
LG is getting ready to launch an amazing new flexible “e-paper” in Europe, possibly within a month’s time. The new display technology is a six inch screen with a 1024×768 resolution in black & white, but the big draw is the ability to bend it at up to a 40 degree angle without breaking. The possible uses for this technology are crazy, being that it’s so lightweight and durable.
This is going to be a total game changer for the e-book market. Sure, Kindles are small and light, but they’re still heavier than a newspaper. One of these things is going to basically make magazines obsolete, and if they’re cheap enough to produce expect to see them all over the place by Christmas.
