YotaPC? Intel laptop includes secondary e-ink screen

This looks neat:

It has an e-ink screen on the other side of the main display
Quote:
The laptop had a regular screen on one side of the display panel and a gray scale e-ink screen on the other. When it was shut, the e-ink screen could serve as an electronic sticker to read ebooks, images, text messages or news .

Intel showed off a similar concept in 2007:

2007? The article you linked is from today.

Edit: Oops, I see now it links in there to http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/I...aptop-Displays which is from 2011 about the 2007 event. My bad.

Guess they have been around for a bit. But I think that this is a neat concept.

yeah back then MS had a technology they were including in Windows called SideShow http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_SideShow.

At the time I was working on a number of Eink display SideShow devices. A calendar device to hang on the wall as the family calendar, a "TV GUIDE" tv remote control etc etc. That would all be driven by the remote display SideShow tech.

It wasnt supported much by the major oems, although they showed off alot of ideas they only produced a hand full. there was a lot of interest but consumers didnt seem to go for it. there were only a couple reference design devices to use as a base for my ideas. I found out real quick how hard it would be to design, build and market my devices at a price consumers would find appealing. This was before Kickstarter and indiegogo. There were a few well designed remotes produced for working with windows media center pcs .


MS dropped Sideshow as part of the OS in Win 7 and completely dropped support for any existing gadgets/devices in Win 8

I wonder what they are using to push the info and drive the display? maybe it acts like a standalone tablet with the info just pushed there via an app

Maybe the Samsung Nook tablets would have been more interesting, had they had the dual e-ink/LCD screens as described here.

That would indeed be interesting, though I think that it would be hard to impement.
