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.
