Magink - world's first color ink display!

Do you know Gyricon or E-Ink? The two companies develop devices that could be the future of our ebook readers. Digital ink books.

Both Gyricon and E Ink products are monochrome, meaning that text and images can be shown in black and white, or two contrasting colors like blue and gray.

Now there is a company called Magink, which claims the lead in bringing full-color digital ink out of the laboratory.

Doesn't that sound nice?

Sounds nice There is more news on new display technologies. Just read in the
Inquirer that a breakthrough was made in low power LCDs.
Quote:
New development in ultra low power bistable LCD technologies will give mobile LCD displays dramatically superior optical properties according to Manoj Thanigasalam, speaking at Display Forum 2003 in Holland.
While development is only in the early stages, the benefits over traditional LCD sound impressive. Using zero power to retain its image, it has superior brightness and contrast, and a much wider viewing angle. It is readable under various lighting conditions, including bright sunlight and has a simple, low cost passive matrix structure.
Although currently black and white, Thanigasalam predicts 4K colour by 2004, 65K colour by 2005 and full video by 2006.
Zero power to retain its image - Wonderful! for us ebook readers
