Funky e-paper in The Andromeda Strain

Anyone else seen the recent mini-series The Andromeda Strain? In that show, the military uses an e-paper that works like a computer, is bendable and in color. Exactly what we're looking for!

It's probably blue screen. I know that on Firefly, about 5 years ago, they were doing CG very similar to the above pictures.

Heh, I say someone broke into E Ink's super-hidden labs, stole a couple of panels, and sent them anonymously to the producers of the show.
