Japanese using e-paper for evacuation guidance

As one of the highest risk areas for earthquakes, Japan isn't taking any chances. Currently on display at the Toshima Post Office in Tokyo, pedestrians can wonder about a new e-paper display from Toppan Printing Co, measuring 1 x 3.2m with a 240 x 768 pixels resolution. Tech-On reports:

Quote:
This experiment of displaying local disaster information on electronic papers was conducted by establishing a wireless communication network centered on an emergency center built inside Toshima Life and Industry Plaza. The aim of the test was to prove the effectiveness of the system as evacuation guidance for people who might not be able to return home in the event of a disaster.
If you happen to be around Tokyo and you want to see it, better hurry, because it'll be only displayed until January 29th.

Finally a decent-size e-ink display! But is the resolution reported accurately? I would expect more pixelation.

I just read a newspaper article about a company that has started to produce large e-ink displays for commercial purposes:

http://www.lsid.nl/products/



Oh, I forgot to mention: it runs on 4 AA batteries and will will for several months on one charge...

(the article was in Dutch, as it was in our local newspaper, maybe I'll translate it...)
