Seiko's 'Future Now' watch uses e-paper technology
Seiko has developed a wristwatch using E Ink's electrophoretic paper technology and presented a prototype at the BASELWORLD 2005 exhibit in Switzerland. The watch, which not only displays the current time but also a constantly-altering mosaic pattern, is supposed to be launched in Japan within FY2005.
I cannot believe they are putting this wonderful technology into a watch. While we are still waiting for a decent e-book hardware reader, these people are only thinking of watches. Grrrrr.

Damn I'd like to see that watch. In fact, I've never seen e-paper (by E Ink or anyone else) in real life. I am sure it must look gorgeous.

Read the original press release of today to Morpheus' post:
E Ink Corporation, Seiko Epson Corporation, and Seiko Watch Corporation are pleased to announce the demonstration of the world's first watch to utilize an electronic paper display. This 'Future Now' design incorporates an easy-to-read, ultra-thin, low-power display integrated into an eye-catching curved band. The unique electronic paper display module in this Seiko watch is the result of a joint development effort, bringing together E Ink's 'electronic ink' technology and Seiko Epson's advanced display manufacturing and electronic circuitry techniques. When combined, these technologies offer a wide range of display design possibilities -- including flexibility!
