Just saying that Mirasol is different technology than eInk, also refresh rate is bigger (15-30 fps), but the main resemblance is that it's also reflective display.
Plus it needs a small amount of power at all times (not just for screen updates) and if I get this correctly from the youtube videos I've watched, it's got a limited viewing angle (imho one of the reasons to go for E-Ink for e-reader purposes).

Thus, I see it rather fit as a monitor than an e-paper replacement.
Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who already has one of the Mirasol devices - does anyone have hands-on experience with them? (...hm... this is getting off-topic, but I'm curious )
